In today's reading (September 7th) reading from the Ohrid this reference to a writing of St. Macarius was made:
"Victory over anger is one of the greatest victories of a soldier of Christ. We generally become angry either at those we wish to turn back from sin, or at those who slander us. However, in doing so we forget that anger is a mortal sin, and in desiring the salvation of others we lose our own, according to the words of St. Macarius. "

Can someone help me locate the source?
