VIRTUE AND VICE


 

 

GIVE UP YOUR PRIDE

Realize your dignity; God made you unto His own likeness. And yet every creature obeys God better than man. Even the devils were not fully responsible for crucifying Christ. Man did it. And you crucify Christ by taking pleasure in your vices and sins.

What are you proud of? That you have all the knowledge? The devil has more. There is only one thing we can boast of: our humiliations and our taking up of the cross of Christ daily.

St. Francis of Assisi
