Abba Dorotheos. The Fifteenth Instruction. On the holy forty days of Lent / OrthoChristian.Com

Abba Dorotheos. The Fifteenth Instruction. On the holy forty days of Lent / OrthoChristian.Com: In the Law it is written that God commanded the sons of Israel to give a tenth part of all they had acquired during each year, and thereby bring a blessing upon all their deeds. With this in mind, the Holy Apostles established and committed to us as a help and benefaction for our souls something yet greater and more exalted--that we should set apart a tenth portion of the very days of our lives and devote them to God. Thereby might we also receive a blessing for all our deeds, and yearly cleanse the sins we have committed over the course of the whole year.
