Elder Porphyrios: “True humility doesn’t speak and doesn’t make a show of humility.”

Elder Porphyrios

“True humility doesn’t speak and doesn’t make a show of humility. It doesn’t say for example, “I am a sinner and unworthy and the very least of men…” The humble person fears that such words may lead him to fall into vanity. The grace of God does not approach here. On the contrary, the grace of God is to be found where there is true humility, divine humility, perfect trust in God, total dependence on Him.”
– Elder Porphyrios (Bairaktaris) of Kafsokalivia
