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.
