Wherever you go…

Amma Theodora said, “There was a monk, who, because of the great number of his temptations said, ‘I will go away from here.’

“As he was putting on his sandals he saw another man who was also putting on his sandals, and this monk said to him, ‘Is it on my account that you are going away? Because I go before you wherever you are going.’”
