Fr. Mike’s Spiritual Reflection – 12/22/2014

HUMILITY. I always like to say that humility is like underwear. Everyone should have it, but it shouldn’t show.

    HUMILITY.  I always like to say that humility is like underwear. Everyone should have it, but it shouldn’t show.
    Humility is one of St. Vincent’s special virtues.
    But its an elusive one. It isn’t demeaning oneself.  It isn’t denying a person when he compliments us on something good that we have accomplished.
    True humility, I believe, is when we simply acknowledge that anything good, or even great that we do or are, is truly the work of God using us as His rusty instruments.  It’s also admitting that when we mess up it is truly us.
    Humility is truth above all else.  And the ultimate truth is that all good comes from God.
