Quote/s of the Day – 30 March – The Memorial of St John Climacus (c 525-606) Father of the Church
“Humility is the only virtue
that no devil can imitate.
If pride made demons out of angels,
there is no doubt,
that humility could
make angels out of demons.”
“Obedience is the burial of the will
and the resurrection of humility.”
“Repentance lifts a man up.
Mourning knocks at heaven’s gate.
Holy humility opens it.”
“… A proud soul is the slave of fear,
hoping in itself, in comes to such a state,
that it is startled by a small noise
and is afraid of the dark.”
