Thought of the Day August 16, 2017 Humilty

By 11:15 AM

"That the virtue of humility consists in the knowledge of certain truths, I had already recognized. These truths are: that I am nothing, that I can do nothing but sin, that I depend on God for everything--for existence, conservation, movement, and grace. What is more, I am most happy in my dependence on God, and I prefer to depend entirely on God rather than on myself." (St. Anthony Mary Claret) Someone else has said, I am who I am in the eyes of God, nothing more, nothing less. Humility does not consist in degrading ourselves but seeing ourselves as God sees us. It is the virtue that allows us to live in the truth of my relationship with God and others. St. Paul states it thus: "I warn each of you not to think more highly of himself than he ought. Let him estimate himself soberly." (Roms 12:3)
