~ Words of the Church Fathers ~
When you are praying alone, and your spirit is dejected, and you are wearied and oppressed by your loneliness, remember then, as always, that God the Trinity looks upon you with eyes brighter than the sun; also all the angels, your own Guardian Angel, and all the Saints of God. Truly they do; for they are all one in God, and where God is, there are they also. Where the sun is, thither also are directed all its rays. Try to understand what this means.
St John of Kronstadt
Humility is the only thing we need; one can still fall having virtues other than humility – but with humility one does not fall.
Elder Herman of Mt Athos
