✞ The virtue of the Cross. Stripping oneself of one’s own will.
Volume 2 — Entry 23
I was kneeling in church when our Lord Jesus, dressed all in white, passed by me many times. He then stopped, and with His Holy Finger from His right Hand, He would point at me and say, in a very serious tone, “Humble yourself.”
I said, “Lord, I am humble.”
“More! You’re not humble enough,” He said. He then went towards the Tabernacle and vanished.
Our Lord wants us to humble ourselves right down to nothing. We must realize that we are nothing because our Lord does not like pride.
Pride is one of the worst things for Him. Our Lord said, “I suffered for pride.”
