“love and humility. As soon as these two virtues are nurtured, pride and evil will become malnourished and the passions will start to perish. In this way, one by one, all of the passions will gradually disappear, and the rest of the virtues will come on their own. Therefore, direct all your efforts towards love and humility.  True love and humility embrace each other like loving twin siblings. Love cannot be separated from humility. Love contains humility and humility contains love.  For me, the foundation of spiritual life is love and humility. Where there is love, Christ dwells within, as He is Love; and where there is humility, the Grace of God becomes the “rent-control tenant”. Thus, God reigns everywhere and earth is transformed into Paradise.”
