Desert Fathers

We just learned about the monk Macarius of Egypt.

The monks that lived in the desert, trying to survive on very little food, and studying God's wisdom were known as Desert Fathers.

Anthony the Great and Macarius of Egypt were both in the group, and people would write down some of the wise sayings that the Desert Fathers told people, and they made a book of them called "Sayings of the Fathers".
