Saintly Quote of the Day (2009年1月8日)

As long as we are in this mortal life, nothing is more necessary for us than humility.---ST. TERESA.

為我們旅居塵世的人,謙虛是最需要的。

 

The virtue of humility may be defined: "A quality by which a person considering his own defects has a lowly opinion of himself and willingly submits himself to God and to others for God's sake." St. Bernard defines it: "A virtue by which a man knowing himself as he truly is, abases himself." These definitions coincide with that given by St. Thomas: "The virtue of humility", he says, "Consists in keeping oneself within one's own bounds, not reaching out to things above one, but submitting to one's superior".---CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA.
