‘One day when we were walking beside the sea I was thirsty and I said to Abba Bessarion,
“Father, I am very thirsty.”
He said a prayer and said to me,
“Drink some of the sea water.”
The water proved sweet when I drank some.
I even poured some into a leather bottle for fear of being thirsty later on.
the old man asked me why I was taking some.
I said to him, “Forgive me, it is for fear of being thirsty later on.” Then the old man said,
“God is here, God is everywhere.” ‘
