From the Philokalia:

The fathers ... kept the commandments; their successors wrote them down; but we have placed their books on the shelves.

Overheard on retreat:

In the old days, when a friar arrived at a friary for the first time, the first thing he asked was, 'where's the chapel?' Then it was, 'where's the refectory?' Now it's, 'what's the password for the wifi?

And now most people wouldn't know what a refectory is!!

Yesterday I was at an art show. A friar depicted in a painting (which was unfortunately too expensive for me) looked a whole lot like Fr. Charles. The painting was titled "Unknown Martyr".
