LOVE HUMILITY

My dearest sister Florentina,

Be humble like your Bridegroom who, though equal to the Father, "humbled Himself even to death."  The true God became man to experience humility so that, through His humanity, He may teach us humility.  

Thus, the Mighty God allowed Himself to be beaten with whips.  He, in whose hands the universe hung, allowed himself to be hung on the cross.  Taunted, He did not taunt in return.  And to the ungrateful Jews, He prayed, "Father, forgive them."  

My sister, if you truly love your Bridegroom, you must love His humility.  Do not fear to imitate Him because He is God; remember He became man for our imitation.  He taught humility and practiced humility. . .and He judged that humility can be done by all.
