Humility 2.

Mother Teresa with Blessed John Paul II

Mother Teresa’s posture and outstretched hand speaks loudly of  her humility as a servant of Jesus. She lived her life dedicated to the poorest of the poor and made a real difference in the world, and yet, she remained humble until her death in 1997. The Nobel Peace Prize winner who devoted her life to serving Christ through the poor, died at the age of 87. She was revered by many around the world as a living saint for her work with the dispossessed.

Pope John Paul often praised her work and a Vatican spokesman told reporters he was “deeply hurt” by the news of her death. “The Pope believes she is a woman who has left her mark on the history of this century,” he said. The head of the Catholic church in England and Wales, Cardinal Hume, said she was an “enormously significant figure – everyone knows who Mother Teresa is”. (http://news.bbc.co.uk)

Take the time to reflect on this list. I have decided to use this list as part of my preparation before going to Confession.

Mother Teresa’s Humility List

1. Speak as little as possible about yourself.
2. Keep busy with your own affairs and not those of others.
3. Avoid curiosity.
4. Do not interfere in the affairs of others.
5. Accept small irritations with good humor.
6. Do not dwell on the faults of others.
7. Accept censures even if unmerited.
8. Give in to the will of others.
9. Accept insults and injuries.
10. Accept contempt, being forgotten and disregarded.
11. Be courteous and delicate even when provoked by someone.
12. Do not seek to be admired and loved.
13. Do not protect yourself behind your own dignity.
14. Give in, in discussions, even when you are right.
15. Choose always the more difficult task.

Do read more about this list at this informative site: http://truthandcharity.net/the-humble-pie-challenge/

In a world that lauds self-glorification, living by the standards set in the list is sure to be difficult, to say the least.

Mother said, ”He taught us to learn from Him, to be meek and humble of heart. If we are meek and humble, we will love each other as He loves us.”
