Whatever the devil casts in, keep casting out – Apophthegmata Patrum


An old man said, “The Calumniator is the Enemy, and the Enemy will never cease to cast into your house, if he possibly can, impurity of every kind, and it is your duty neither to refuse nor to neglect to take that which is cast in and to throw it out; for if you are negligent your house will become filled with impurity, and you will be unable to enter inside. Therefore whatever the Enemy casts in little by little, throw out little by little, and your house shall remain pure by the Grace of Christ.”

[Apophthegmata Patrum]
