Suspicion, Consumer of Peace

Oh is this so true! Suspicion can eat away your peace and make you crazy!

Flee from suspicion like fire, for with it the enemy of the human race catches people in his net and strives to present everything in a distorted appearance - white is black and black is white, as he did in Paradise with our ancestors Adam and Eve.

This quote is from St. Ambrose and can also be found in Living Without Hypocrisy: Spiritual Counsels of the Holy Elders of Optina, Holy Trinity Monastery.
