I am not worthy to see angels

The devil appeared to a monk one night looking like an angel of light and told him:

`I am Gabriel and I was sent to you to bring you a good news.`

And the monk answered:

`I think you must have been sent to some others, since I am sinful and not worthy to see any angels.`

And brother answered:

When saying that, the cunning one vanished from him.
