Examin Saturday 2 November 2013

'Lord, have mercy on me a sinner.'

When you examine your conscience, be brutally honest. There is no point in trying to be other than who you are before the One who made you. Stand before him with all due humility; accept that all you have is from him; that all good you do is simply the duty of a worthless slave; do not attempt to boast of your good deeds, or how much better you are than others. Stand before him, naked in the truth that you are a sinner. And ask him to have mercy on you.

'If Satan fell from heaven by pride alone, humility alone lifts man to heaven.' 
the desert father Saint John el-Daragi
