Real Humility

Humility is to love what the foundation is to a building. Digging the foundation is not building the house, yet it is essential and indispensable preparation. The more secure the foundation, the better the house will be and greater assurance of stability it will have.

Humility forms the foundation of love by emptying the soul of pride, arrogance and disordered love of self and replaces them with the love of God and love of neighbor.

When it’s less about me, there is more room for God and neighbor. Confidence and courage grows, elevating me to live more peacefully and cheerfully.

O sweet Jesus, teach me how to practice true humility.
