Sanctifying Humility

Might we consider begging and pleading with the only two who have walked this Earth, incapable of sin, Jesus and Mary, for mercy and pity on us.

We need it, especially now, we that are so weak, so wayward, and so willfully/unwillfully sinful, especially when we cannot, in our nothingness, decipher willfull/unwillfull.

When we say the Our Father prayer, we ought to consider that part “thy will be done,” as a desperate plea, not as much a simple pledge of obedience. We should be earnest in our desire to experience His will along with the diminishment of ours.

As St. John the Bapist said, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

Ave Maria, Deo Gratias!
