This may be blasphemous (Lord have mercy on me if it is!),


The words and appearances of the three holy Hierarchs and Fathers of the Church, Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian and John Chrysostom when people were trying to work out who was the greatest suggest that it may be blasphemous, or at least something very unacceptable to the Saints.  See message 3.   What was not good in the 11th century is not good in the 21st.

Yes, since they preach Christ, and not themselves, and speak with the Church's authority, not their own, so that Christ increase as they decrease, the saints would be the first to agree.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
