Three of the brothers had the habit to come every year to abba Anthony.
Two of them asked him about thoughts and about the salvation of the soul, but one of them remained silent and didn`t ask him anything at all.
And after some time abba Anthony told him:
`You`ve been coming here for so long and you never ask me anything.`
`It is enough for me to see you, father.`
