Elder Paul (Troitsky) about vainglory from good deeds

Elder Paul (Troitsky) (1894-1991)

Archpriest Vladimir Vorob'yov. "Hieromonk Paul (Troitsky)".

From a letter of elder Paul.

You know, Olushka, my joy, I see that the spirit of the time has captured many people, especially those born in the 30s, 40s, etc.. If someone has done something, he can reveal his good deeds. It's disgusting, and it would be better that they never had done anything good for anybody. I write this with full responsibility - that it is so.
