The practice of Humility - 53

Recall in your imagination the insults which could come upon you; this will help you to grow in this virtue and to find humiliation sweet and familiar.  Study within yourself how to accept these imagined insults, in spite of your obstinate nature; they are tokens of God’s love for you and sure means of sanctification. Perhaps in so doing you will have to struggle, but be courageous and strong in the fight, until you feel firm and well determined to suffer everything joyfully for the love of Jesus Christ.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
