Catholic quotations from the Church Doctors, Church Fathers and all the great Catholic minds.
Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Humility is ‘thy will be done.’ Humility is focused on God, not self. Humility is not an exaggeratedly low opinion of yourself. Humility is self-forgetfulness. A humble man never tells you how bad he is. He’s too busy thinking about you to talk about himself. That’s why humility is such a joy and so close to the beatific vision, where we will be so fascinated with God that we forget ourselves completely.
--Peter Kreeft, "How Does the Weakness of the Cross Make Us Strong?"
