St. Paisios the Athonite: Humility produces much Spiritual Progress

[St. Paisios responds to the comment: ‘Geronta, I think that if a person is humble, and asks for God’s mercy, God will help him make spiritual progress.’] 

That's correct. It requires humility. There is spiritual progress when there is much humility. Those who find a way to a humble frame of mind advance in the spiritual life quickly, steadily and without effort. We have not yet come to know the great power of humility, through which all progress is made. The more one is humbled, the more he is graced by God and the further he progresses. Humility has great power, but people do not take advantage of it!

[St. Paisios responds to the question: ‘Geronta, does a humble soul have a much easier spiritual struggle?’] Certainly, a humble person, with just a little push, can go a long way. Take a marble, for example: roll it this way, and there it goes; roll it that way, and again it goes. [This is] because it has no bumps to stop its course.”
