Fr. Robert Bengry: Humility
Humility is related to the cardinal virtue of temperance and is the key to so much of the Christian life. St. Thomas Aquinas says that the virtue of humility consists in keeping oneself within one’s own bounds, not reaching out to things above one, but submitting to one’s superior. Humility finds all kinds of expression but is perhaps best communicated by Christ Himself when He says in Matthew 5:5, “blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth”.
