Thought for the Day – 17 July – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
The Humility of Mary
“O Holy Mary, you were humble in life, even though you were the Mother of God.
Obtain for me too, the difficult virtue of humility.
I know that it is the basis of all the virtues and draws the grace of God.
You see how much I need to be humble.
Grant that God may be the centre of my mind and of my heart.
Grant that His glory may be, the object of all my actions and desires and the chief purpose of my life.
