St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“The opposite of spiritual pride would be humble love. Humble love regards himself as the least holy, the most unworthy of grace. He knows all good comes from God – that God is the source of every grace. He humbly tries just to be an instrument in God's Hands. Humble love humbly bears, with patience, the mistakes and character flaws of others. He mercifully, gently corrects when it is his place to do so.”

“In humble love, the soul is always forgiving; knowing it is God's Grace that keeps him from making the errors another has made. In this same spirit of humility, he forgives himself of all iniquity.”

“Humble love never tears down – always builds up. It never causes division, but unites. It does not see its opinion as the only opinion unless it is a matter of good versus evil; then, humble love clings to the Truth.”

“Pray for humble love in your heart.”
