Parable of the Most Humble Monk

In one monastery, the abbot was famous for his righteousness and zeal in serving the Lord. God seen his efforts and despatched an angel to him as a way to reward him for his diligent service.But the abbot refused the reward, and as an alternative requested:

“Show me probably the most humble of the monks of my monastery, in order that I can supply prayers for his soul.”

The angel pointed to one of many brothers. The astonished abbot exclaimed:

“But that is probably the most intemperate of the brothers!”

To which the Angel answered him:

“If this man had not fought with himself each second, he would have killed you all a very long time in the past!”
