Saint Joseph of Panephysis

Abbot Lot came to Abbot Joseph and said: Father,
according as I am able, I keep my little rule, and my
little fast, my prayer, meditation and contemplative
silence; and according as I am able I strive to
cleanse my heart of thoughts: now what more should I
do? The elder rose up in reply and stretched out his
hands to heaven, and his fingers became like ten lamps
of fire. He said: "Why not be totally changed into
fire?"

Note: this is from Merton's 'Wisdom of the Desert'
