home rosary humble

Said to increase desire for humility:
o Humility is the foundation of all virtues. No other virtues are possible w/o it.
o One is totally weak when separated from God, and totally strong when submerged in God.
o It has the effect of charity: It does not seek its own, but only good for others.
o Because of our imperfections, humility must be the foundation of a great generosity.
o Humility repulses Satan and preserves us in the gifts and graces of the Holy Spirit.
o Christ and His Mother honored and cherished this virtue above all others.
o Mary within herself feels small, but she also feels loved and exalted by God.
o Humility as greatness is to feel accepted, valued and loved by the Father.
o Humility as smallness is to accept ourselves as limited and sinful creatures before God.
o Whatever thou doest, offer it up to God, and pray it may be for His honor and glory.
Glory be, Oh my Jesus.

Jesus, help me to be authentically humble in the challenges of each day. Teach me what it means to be humble. Help me to wait my turn to speak and to be at peace when others outshine me. Grant that I may listen with a spirit of objectivity rather than an ‘I know it all’ attitude. Lord, grant that I not only be content with who I am, but have confidence that your grace can make me better! Help me to be obedient without resentment and ready to do Your Will. I ask that You make up for whatever I lack and increase those desires within me that lead to true humility. Most of all, help me to believe in your revelations, hope in Your word and love you more than myself. Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine! Amen.
