St. John Climicus: When people begin to praise us . . .

St. John Climicus“When our praisers, or rather our seducers, begin to praise us, let us briefly call to mind the multitude of our sins, and we shall find ourselves unworthy of what is said or done in our honor.”

+ St. John of the Ladder, Ladder of Divine Ascent, Step 22.42
