The practice of Humility - 31

If they have caused you a great injury, if they have provoked you, instead of raging in fury against the offenders, turn your eyes to heavens, turn your eyes to the Lord.  In his infinite and loving providence, he arranged things thus, either to make you atone for your sins, or to destroy your pride; he is encouraging you to make acts of patience and humility.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
