Lenten Improvement - Humility

The following is taken from Improve:Now is the Acceptable Time! distributed by the Archconfraternity of Christian Mothers.

Not Weakness:

Humility is strength. What made Peter and Paul the fearless fighters for Our Lord after their conversion? Their humility. They knew their own weakness. They became strong with the strength of Christ and courageous with the courage of Christ. The humble man continually hears the passage from Scripture: 'Without Me you can do nothing,' but he also hears the other passage: 'I can do all things in Him who strengthens me.' Humility is strength, the strength of the divine in a human heart freed of pride."
