In our daily reading of the Holy Rule of Saint Benedict, we are in the thick of Chapter 7, “Humility.” What is humility? Cardinal Basil Hume (1923-1999) used these words to describe humility: “it is facing the truth about who God is, and the truth of who I am.” He continued:
It is my experience that men and women of true eminence and real wisdom often have a deep humility. They know their own limitations and how much they do not know. It is good to meet a learned but wise person, and to find in that person the wonder and simplicity of a child.(To Be a Pilgrim: A Spiritual Notebook, 67)
Do you know anyone with a deep humility? What qualities do you find in him or her?

LIVING AND TRUE GOD, GRANT US THE GIFT OF DEEP HUMILITY.
SAINTS COSMAS AND DAMIAN, PRAY FOR US.
