Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

HUMILITY

“I am a man; nothing human is alien to me.”

— Terence

Humility is not so much about trying to be “good” as accepting that I am imperfect. For too long I thought that humility was “keeping the peace”, appearing to be “perfect”, bottling up my anger and resentments — living a life of “people-pleasing”.

Today I understand that humility is being real. It is accepting my humanity and being honest in my relationships. Humility is respecting the lives of others but also respecting my own. Humility is seeking to reveal that divinity that God has given to my life. Humility is knowing that in the lives of my fellow man — the good and the bad — is me.

Master, let me have the humility to be real.
