5th March


Anyone who is not humble without limit is unsuitable for the grandeur of charity. Pride knows nothing of charity, which has no part with the proud and does not enter any heart swollen with pride. The humiliation of the Son of God brought charity to the humble. Listen to St. Paul: Christ Jesus, though He was divine by nature, did not count His equality to God as something to be grasped, but emptied Himself, assuming the condition of a slave and becoming like man; and being found in human form he humbled himself even unto death, death on a cross.
