Virtue Quote: St. Francis de Sales

"The holy Chrism, used by the Church according to apostolic tradition, is made of olive oil mingled with balm, which, among other things, are emblematic of two virtues very specially conspicuous in our Dear Lord Himself, and which He has specially commended to us, as though they, above all things, drew us to Him and [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Teresa of Avila

"The truly humble person will have a genuine desire to be thought little of, and persecuted, and condemned unjustly, even in serious matters. For, if she desires to imitate the Lord, how can she do so better than this? And no bodily strength is necessary here, nor the aid of anyone save God." -St. Teresa [...]

Virtue Quote: Thomas a’ Kempis

"You must seek earnestly the grace of devotion, ask for it fervently, await it patiently and hopefully, receive it gratefully, guard it humbly, cooperate with it carefully and leave to God, when it comes, the length and manner of the heavenly visitation. When you feel little or no inward devotion, you should especially humiliate yourself, [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Peter Julian Eymard

"Meekness, like humility, is one of Jesus Christ's characteristic virtues. It is, consequently, one of the fundamental virtues of evangelical perfection. Sanctity that is not meek is not true. Our Lord set down meekness and humility as the dominant virtues of His Heart." -St. Peter Julian Eymard

Virtue Quote: St. Teresa of Avila

"For, indeed, it takes great humility to find oneself unjustly condemned and be silent, and to do this is to imitate the Lord Who set us free from our sins. I beg you then, to study earnestly to do so, for it brings great gain whereas I can see no gain in our trying to [...]

"Again, there are abject and honorable virtues; for the world generally despises patience, gentleness, simplicity, and even humility itself, while, on the contrary, it highly esteems prudence, valor, and liberality." -St. Francis de Sales

Virtue Quote: St. Hildegard of Bingen

"Humility always groans, weeps and destroys all offenses, for this is its work. So let anyone who wishes to conquer the Devil arm himself with humility, since Lucifer fervently flees it and hides in its presence like a snake in a hole; for wherever it finds him, it quickly snaps him like a fragile thread." [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Francis de Sales

"Humility might make us indifferent even to a good reputation, were it not for Charity’s sake; but seeing that it is a groundwork of society, and without it we are not merely useless but positively harmful to the world, because of the scandal given by such a deficiency, therefore Charity requires, and humility allows, us [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Catherine of Siena

"This is why I told you earlier that if those who eat at the table of penance are not truly humble, and if their penance becomes their chief concern rather than an instrument of virtue, they will often, by this sort of grumbling, sin against their very perfection. So they should not be foolish, but [...]

Virtue Quote: St. Peter Julian Eymard

"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 [...]
