Last year on January 10th, I read about Saint Ammon, the Egyptian Ascetic.  This year I again am struck by the words written of him:

 THE VENERABLE AMMON, EPYPTIAN ASCETIC

For fourteen years, Ammon prayed to God and struggled to conquer anger within himself. He attained such perfection of goodness, that he was not even conscious that evil existed in the world. He was particularly knowledgeable in Holy Scripture. He died at the beginning of the fifth century.

 He was not even conscious that evil existed in the world.  I love this concept.
