Blessings dear friends! This page will hold a list of resources to help us grow in humility. I put it up in response to this message that tells us “Humility is the antidote to the world’s ills.” Like all medicine, humility may seem hard to swallow, but when we think of the benefits, our desire to grow in humility should ignite into a glowing Flame of Love for the glory of God and the good of all. The results will echo in eternity. Blessed Mother, help us to follow you on the path of humility. Jesus, meek and humble of heart, help us!
Here are some articles to help us understand what it means to be humble. It is more complex–and more simple–than we think!
Thehas a good article on it.
The, is an ideal aid against inordinate desires that lead to pride. Notice it says “From the DESIRE of…..Jesus deliver me.” That means that when we are praised, extolled, loved, etc., these things are not wrong. It is when we DESIRE these things that we exit humility. Whether we are extolled or reviled it should elicit the same response in our souls—praised be Jesus in all things forever!
Here is an article by Edward Sri on Magnanimity and humility: Called to Greatness: The Virtue of Magnanimity
Here is an article from a non-Catholic source that also is helpful. I have not vetted the entire site, but this article on The Meaning of Humility is worth sharing.
If you have found other sites that will assist us in growing in this virtue, please pass them on and I will add them here.
