Prayer for Humility
"O God, who resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble: grant us the virtue of true humility, where of Your Only-begotten son showed in Himself a pattern for Your faithful; that we may never by our pride provoke Your anger, but rather by our meekness receive the riches of Your grace."
Oh my Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you,

Teach me the wisdom of true Humility,
Give me the courage to accept from the Holy Spirit
Just what was, is, to be.
Let my thoughts be always Charitable
And help me to be Obedient
and give a Good Example to others.
Oh, my beloved, thou also My God,
Make my heart a flame of pure love for you.
Give me this virtue of Humility
To Know, Understand and live my life
In order to become like Jesus
At the hour and moment
at midnight in Bethlehem in piercing cold.
Forgive me Jesus, for all my weaknesses and temptations,
And help me to renounce the world, the flesh and the devil,
in order to live in a closer unity with my heavenly Father,
so that I may unite myself with you.

Amen.
*The Humility of Mary
TAKEN FROM THE GLORIES OF MARY

Humility," says St. Bernard, "is the foundation and guardian of virtues;" and with reason, for without it no other virtue can exist in a soul. Should she possess all virtues, all will depart when humility is gone. But, on the other hand, as St. Francis de Sales wrote to St. Jane Frances de Chantal, "God so loves humility, that whenever He sees it, He is immediately drawn thither." This beautiful and so necessary virtue was unknown in the world; but the Son of God Himself came on earth to teach it by His Own example, and willed that in that virtue in particular we should endeavor to imitate Him: Learn of Me, because I am meek and humble of heart. Mary, being the first and most perfect disciple of Jesus Christ in the practice of all virtues, was the first also in that of humility, and by it merited to be exalted above all creatures. It was revealed to St. Matilda that the first virtue in which the Blessed Mother particularly exercised herself, from her very childhood, was that of humility.
