H/T: Архиерей, Archbishop Ignaty’s blog:
I don’t think the translation is that good, I used translate.google.com. For those who speak Russian, feel free to correct it.
The abbot, wishing to test his brother, asked him:
– What did I say today in the sermon?
– I do not remember – he confessed.
– How did you listen to it if nothing stayed in your memory?
– Forgive me Father, but when I wash my hands, the water does not remain on them. But the hands are very clean.
