Message of the day

“Where there is humility, there is wisdom”

Quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae -- because he has looked graciously upon the lowliness of his handmaid ... I am more convinced every day that authentic humility is the supernatural basis for all virtues! Talk to Our Lady, so that she may train us to walk along that path. (Furrow, 289)

If we turn to Sacred Scripture we will see that humility is absolutely necessary when we are making ready to listen to God. ‘Where there is humility, there is wisdom’, says the book of Proverbs. Humility means looking at ourselves as we really are, honestly and without excuses. And when we realise that we are worth hardly anything, we can then open ourselves to God’s greatness: it is there our greatness lies.

How well Our Lady, Jesus’ Holy Mother, understood this! She, the most exalted...

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"It is in the simplicity of your ordinary work, in the monotonous details of each day, that you have to find the secret, which is hidden from so many, of something great and new: Love.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
