Irenaeus of Lyons Church. Personalities John of Damascus

Saint Isaac of Nineveh

Born:  Magdal, Bahrain
Died: c. 700; 

Isaac of Nineveh also remembered as Isaac the Assyrian, Abba Isaac and Isaac Syrus was a 7th-century Assyrian bishop and theologian best remembered for his written work. He is also regarded as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church and in the Catholic Church.

Let yourself be persecuted, but do not persecute others.
Be crucified, but do not crucify others.
Be slandered, but do not slander others.
St. Isaac of Nineveh

Scourged by the scourge of love

I also maintain that those who are punished in Gehenna are scourged by the scourge of love.

Nay, what is so bitter and vehement as the torment of love?

I mean that those who have become conscious that they have sinned against love suffer greater torment from this than from any fear of punishment.

For the sorrow caused in the heart by sin against love is more poignant than any torment.

It would be improper for a man to think that sinners in Gehenna are deprived of the love of God.
