Growing in the virtue of humility is a worthy practice for Lent, and this package of stories by our partner Catholic News Service can help keep Christ, the model of humility, first in our lives.
Happily humble: Virtue in a competitive world
With today’s tendency to wildly celebrate victories and talents, Jesus’ example of humility might seem strange. But mindfulness of others, gratitude and the need for growth can keep us humble.
How to grow in humility in the social media era
Social media tends to force us into broadcasting ourselves. Humility is the opposite, seeking to put others first and ourselves last. Father Geoffrey Brooke suggests some ways social media can help to build up others.
A litany of humility for the everyday
Lent offers the perfect opportunity to pray for and work toward growing in humility — this prayer, or one you make yourself, can help.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
