A Charming Priest

I just love this story. Abba Peter's humility is attractive enough, but it's the last line that always makes me smile. I guess I've just known too many people who somehow manage to make the beauty of faith in Christ into something incredibly annoying...!
There was a priest at Dios called Peter.
When he prayed with others,
he should have stood in the front
because he was a priest.
But he preferred humility,
so he always stood at the back and said,
"This is what is described
in the life of St Anthony."
And he did this without irritating anyone.
