Saint Quotes of the Week

“There is one vice (pride) of which no man in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else…There is no fault which makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which We are more unconscious of in ourselves. And the more we have it ourselves, the more we dislike it in others.” – C.S. Lewis

“Humility is the recognition of gifts as gifts, faults as faults. Humility is the dependence on God.” – Venerable Fulton Sheen

Challenge of the Week

Choose humility. Take two minutes at the end of the day, perhaps when you’re brushing your teeth, and reflect on your own pride that day. Was there just one moment you could have chosen humility? It may be difficult to pick out because we often don’t see our own pride.


Dinner Table Questions

1. Has pride ever prevented you from turning back to God through the sacrament of confession?
2. Where are you the most prideful? Do you think this affects your relationships?
3. Pride is often listed at the beginning of the seven deadly sins. Do you agree that this is the root of all sin?
