Abyssus Abyssum Invocat” Latin phrase meaning “One misstep leads to another” or, literally, “Hell calls hell.” A warning that the first step in the temptation to go astray from what is right (or morally correct) is difficult to prevent; however, we must always be on guard to strive for what is ethical and honorable.
