The Life of Our Holy Mother Mary of Egypt, 922 A.D. (Commemorated April 1)

“'It is good to hide the secret of a king, but it is glorious to reveal the works of God' (Tobit 12:7). So said the Archangel Raphael to Tobit when he performed the wonderful healing of his blindness. Actually, not to keep the secret of a king is perilous and a terrible risk, but to be silent about the works of God is injurious to the soul. And I (says Saint Sophronius), in writing the life of Saint Mary of Egypt, am afraid to hide the works of God by silence.”
—“St. Sophronius explains reasons for writing this work.”
