Avoiding the devil ...

Humility and a sober estimation of ourselves:

A sentence from a Desert Father:

The devil,
transformed into an angel of light,

appeared to one of the brethren
and said to him:

"I am the Archangel Gabriel,
and I have been sent to you."

The brother replied:
"Make sure that you have not been sent
to some other brother.

As for me,
I am absolutely unworthy of such a thing."


At once the devil disappeared.
