A many-headed monster

17 March 2023

Pride is a monster with many heads which secretes in its entrails all the passions and all the wickednesses. It’s pride that begets anger, judgementalism, malice, hypocrisy, callousness, blasphemy, belittlement of your neighbor, stubbornness, bluster and disobedience to God’s law. Indeed, in the end it leads to total lack of belief, an alliance with the demons and derangement.
