The conscience of one truly obedient

Venerable John Climacus ~ The Ladder of Divine Ascent
Step 4 ~ On Obedience

¶50. If anyone has his conscience in the utmost purity in the matter of obedience to his spiritual father, then he daily awaits death as if it were sleep, or rather life, and is not dismayed, knowing for certain that at the time of his departure, not he, but his director, will be called to account.
