St. Martin de Porres

Luke 14:1,7-11

How are we to retain a proper humility in relation to God and to others? First, it is by recognizing the facts. However much we have achieved, we have achieved very little in the end. However important we may believe ourselves to be, when death comes, life for everyone else will go on just the same. If we compare our life to the life of the Lord and if we see our unworthiness in comparison with the radiance of his purity, then pride will die. The good news is that our Lord treasures each one of us as if there were just one of us.
