may God stand
There were two natural brothers, and the devil came to separate them
from one another. One day the younger one lit the lamp, and the demon
got involved and turned over the lampstand. Seeing that the lamp also
was overturned, his brother struck him in anger. The other apologized,
saying, “Be patient, my brother, I will light it again.” And behold,
the power of the Lord came and tormented the demon until morning. The
demon went and told the one who ruled over him what had happened. The
priest of the pagans overheard the demon’s tale and went off, became a
monk, and from the start persevered in humility. And he used to say,
‘Humility takes away all of the enemy’s power,’ just as he himself had
heard from the demon, ‘When I agitate the monks, one of them turns
around and apologizes, and destroys all my power.’”
  • Thank you, love.

    It's what I was trying to find, tonight. I'll give it a go.
