The teachings of Abba Dorotheos of Gaza, creates a challenge for man in the modern age. Today, we are accustomed to a way of life where our pursuit for opulence renders our world outlook inadequate to comprehend the value and importance of ascecis, of bodily toil and frugality. To a great extent, we have adapted the Gospel to a level which suits our own worldly pursuits. Thus, we tend to reject the words of a holy man such as Abba Dorotheos who had dedicated his life to the teaching of the Gospel, the unconditional love for God, for fellow human beings and for the world.
