“Meekness is not, then, a natural virtue, and one attains it not by his own strength, nor by merely saying. ‘I want to be meek.’ It is a virtue proper to Jesus Christ, entirely supernatural. For us to practise it, His grace, a powerful grace, is necessary. It is the question of simply vanquishing one’s self-love entirely, and that is no easy thing.” -St. Peter Julian Eymard
