Humility is a supernatural virtue by which we lovingly recognize our true value in God’s eyes, and are disposed to render him due recognition for all the good we find in ourselves . . .We are the soil in which Christ grows; his roots will only pick out from us what is in accordance with his Father’s will. Therefore it depends upon us to decide whether by doing the will of God we are to be absorbed by Christ and are to enter into life – or to be left by him in the exterior darkness of our own will.
– Father Eugene Boylan, O.C.S.O.
