Today’s episode on pride is the first in a seven part series on the seven deadly sins.
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.
