“Our personal sins are another source of profound humility and humiliation. I am a sinner, more of a sinner than all other men, for I could have and I might have done all that they have done. With as many graces as I, they would not have been so wicked as I. That is the truth. The truly humble man places himself below all others in his own esteem. He knows that he deserves the last place, and he places himself last. Besides, without need, of comparisons and proportions, have you even once offended God? Well then, you have, you yourself, crucified Jesus Christ in you. Is not that sufficient ? And if you have frequently offended Him, oh, into what abysses of humility should you not plunge and hide yourself!” – St. Peter Julian Eymard
