St. Benedict On Humility
To recognize one's nothingness as a creature is to grow in holiness with God. To arrive at the awareness that one cannot take credit for anything without fully crediting God, is to recognize one's true state ― a creature dependent on the Creator for every aspect of one's life. This humility is the path to "right living" with God, living in a relationship without illusion, without pride. It is a relationship of faith and trust, awe and love.
