The practice of Humility - 3

Think often of your weakness, blindness, cowardice, and hardness of heart, of your sensuality, insensitivity towards God, and attachment to creatures, of the many other vicious inclinations welling up from your perverted nature.  May these considerations plunge you continually into your nothingness, and remind you of how small and humble you must always be in your own eyes.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
