This is what you have to do

11 May 2023

Do you really want to defeat pride, which is enough by itself to deprive you of the kingdom of heaven? This is what you have to do: Love silence. Live in obscurity, concealing your good works and spiritual labors from other people. Bear other people’s chastisement, shaming, mockery and contempt without complaint. As also the blows from God, which are for your edification.

Saint Dimitri of Rostov
