POPE FRANCIS – Mass at Santa Marta- There is no humility without humiliation (2016-02-01)
“The only path to humility is humiliation. David’s goal, which is holiness, is reached through humiliation. The goal of holiness that God gives to his children and to the Church, comes through the humiliation of his Son who lets himself be cursed, who lets himself be borne on the Cross, unjustly. This Son of God who humbles himself, is the path of holiness: David, with his attitude, prophesies the humiliation of Jesus. We ask of the Lord, for each of us, for all the Church, the grace of humility, but also the grace of understanding that it is impossible to be humble without humiliation”.
