The practice of Humility - 15

In your examination of conscience, cultivate always the practice of accusing, blaming, and condemning yourself.  Be a severe judge of all your actions; these are always accompanied by thousands of defects and by continuous pretenses of self-love.  Foster a just contempt for yourself, seeing yourself as lacking prudence, simplicity and purity of heart.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
