The desert fathers offer to use today the same pastoral care that they offered those who came seeking health and healing in 3rd century Egypt. Their method of care had authority because it came out of a lifestyle seeped in Christ’s love. Their spiritual practices of prayer, Scriptural reading and intimate relationship provided a healing environment where the sick were made well and the demons were cast out. It was a context of continual spiritual warfare, one where the monks sought to live their lives in the freedom of Christ’s love.
