Humble obedience

On the feast of the Annunciation last year, Pope Francis spoke of humility. “Making progress means lowering oneself” on the road of humility to allow God’s love to be clearly seen. Christian humility raises us to God, as those who bear witness to it “stoop low” to make room for charity. This was the road taken by Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, the “golden rule” for Christians, “the way by which charity surely passes,” for, “if there is no humility, love remains blocked …”

Lord, may I, like Mary, be humbly obedient to your will.
