The passion of pride seduced even Lucifer, who was created as the greatest and most glorious angel. Pride is thus the primordial cause of the fall of creation. Infiltrating even unto the heights of the angelic hosts, pride remains the main cause of man’s sin and his separation from God. It is pride and pride alone that transformed Lucifer into Satan. St. John Climacus mentions that a proud man needs no demon; he has turned himself into one; he has become his own worst enemy. (1)

You can accomplish anything.

You can be anyone. Even God.

Only if you accept that you are no one in particular…
