Saint Moses the Ethiopian


“‘Abba Poemen said: Abba Moses asked Abba Zechariah a question when he was about to die, and said unto him, ‘Father, is it good that we should hold our peace?’ And Zechariah said unto him, ‘Yea, my son, hold thy peace.’ And at the time of his death, whilst Abba Isidore was sitting with him, Abba Moses looked up to heaven, and said, ‘Rejoice and be glad, O my son Zechariah, for the gates of heaven have been opened.'” — The Paradise of the Holy Fathers
