"A spiritual father-confessor named Benjamin, when a person who had come to him for confession was talking about others and criticising his brothers, would send the "penitent" away until he could correct himself and change his attitude. The most simple monk, Elder David, would tell his visitors about this kind of criticism: "Be careful, do not say one person does this and the other does that. If you do so, you lose Christ's grace. Even if you see a person acting like an ass, do not criticise. Love your neighbour as you would your own self. This is what Christ tells us to do.""
