Christian Humility Calls us to Acts of Self-Humiliation

"...He whose soul has become a seat of consummate humility is not only able to confess his wrongs with ease, to submit himself or to bear an offense with resignation; he actually elects to be the last. He yearns for the practice of obedience; he is glad to suffer slights and is avid for contempt and rebuke. It is here that we reach the mysterious innermost core of Christian humility..."
