Saint Moses Says...

Moses The Black--Moses The Strong--Moses The Ethiopian

"Brethren and Fathers, humility humbles the demons and vainglory exalts them. Whoever deprives himself of esteem and is humble of speech weakens the demon’s power. Whoever is not lowly of mind is mocked by demons. Also, the Lord will not listen, nor receive his petition to whomever prays and does not fix in his mind his own sinfulness. Everyone must keep before his eyes his transgressions and shameless conduct, so as not to judge others in the least, and to fulfill the salvific command of the Redeemer: “Judge not lest you be judged.” Then it is certain that he will be saved in the end."
