The quintesence of Humility

Humility consists in considering yourself to be nothing in all circumstances, cutting off your will in all things, blaming yourself for everything, and bearing without confusion anything that which befalls you from the outside. This is true humility, in which vainglory finds no place.

Based on St John the Prophet

A monk censing his brothers with a hand-held censer as they leave the refectory after the common meal. The Monastery of Vatopaidi.
