Litany of Humility
Composed by Cardinal Marry Del Val,

O Jesus! Meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
From the desire of being esteemed,

DELIVER ME DEAR JESUS.

From the desire of being loved . . .
From the desire of being extolled . . .
From the desire of being honored . . .
From the desire of being praised . . .
From the desire of being preferred . . .
From the desire of being consulted . . .
From the desire of being approved . . .
From the fear of being humiliated . . .
From the fear of being despised . . .
From the fear of suffering rebukes . . .
From the fear of being calumniated . . .
From the fear of being forgotten . . .
From the fear of being ridiculed . . .
From the fear of being wronged . . .
From the fear of being suspected . . .

That others may be loved more than I,
Jesus grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be esteemed more than I,

Jesus grant me the grace to desire it.

That in the opinion of the world, others may increase and I may decrease,

Jesus grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be chosen and I set aside,

Jesus grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be praised and I unnoticed,

Jesus grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be preferred to me in everything,

Jesus grant me the grace to desire it.

That others become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should,

Jesus grant me the grace to desire it.
The Most Important
Person On Earth

From the Holy Bible:

"When one finds a worthy wife her value is far beyond pearls
Prov. 31:10

"Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain. The women that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Prov. 31:30

"THE most important person on earth is a mother. She cannot claim the honor of having built Notre Dame Cathedral. She need not. She has built something more magnificent than any cathedral a dwelling for an immortal soul, the tiny perfection of her baby's body.

"The angels have not been blessed with such a grace. They cannot share in God's creative miracle to bring new saints to Heaven. Only a human mother can. Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creature; God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creation.

What on God's good earth is more glorious than this: to be a mother?

Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty
