On Humility, Not Despairing, and the Passions

“I shall tell you something strange, but do not be surprised by it. Should you fail to attain dispassion because of the predispositions dominating you, but at the time of your death be in the depths of humility, you will be exalted above the clouds no less than the man who is dispassionate.”

-- St. Theognostus

from the Antiochian Orthdox Diocese of Los Angeles and the West "Thoughts of the Day"

[Saint Theo-gnostus is, if not mistaken, rendered in English and Saint God-knower. Anyone with enough Greek to help me confirm that? - H]
