Humility

Friends,

One of the very best authors I’ve read is Michael Casey, a Trappist Monk who wrote :

One of the great dangers faced by monastic practitioners is that, after a few months or a few years or a few decades, we become weary of investing so much effort in the spiritual pursuit with so little evidence of having made very much progress.”

Humility is that way, isn’t it?

Humility is being comfortable in your own skin…..

humility

even if it’s not your own……..

    Fr. Ken, the contrast in this post is so “you.” Thanks for the laugh–and the message. Mary
