The practice of Humility - 42

Abandon yourself completely in the hands of God; follow the disposition of his loving providence, as a tender child abandons himself into the arms of his beloved father. Let God do whatever he wishes, without being troubled and disturbed for whatever may happen to you. Accept with joy, trust, and respect, everything that comes from him.  Acting otherwise would be to distrust him, an ingratitude toward the goodness of his Heart. Humility shelters us far beneath the infinite being of God and shows us that God is our strength and consolation.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
