Lysosomes

In biology class we were discussing lysosomes, and how they can carry
digestive enzymes to food vacuoles, and digest anything inside the cell.  I
asked the teacher what it is about the membrane surrounding the lysosome
that prevents the enzymes from digesting it.  She was unsure of this and I
am very curious.  If anyone could help out with an explanation that would be
great!  Thanx!
