About this item

Of all sins, pride is the most dangerous . . . and the most sorrowful: it cuts you off from God, estranges you from others, and leaves you lost and unhappy.

These pages show you how to drive pride from your soul. You'll learn to recognize its many forms (including some that masquerade as virtue), and you'll come to see just why they're such barriers to happiness and to holiness.

You'll also discover the incredible strength of humility, the only virtue that has the power to expel every vestige of pride from your soul. These pages will help you to begin experiencing the joys of humility today.

You'll learn:

How humility breaks the back of every form of prideWhy it is impossible to grow spiritually without humilityWhy humility is a form of strength -- not weakness (as many falsely believe)How humility enables you to acknowledge even your gravest sins without despairingHow humility helps you to see the world clearly, and to love all things in it with greater intensityHow humility allows you to experience the consolation of God's loving embraceWhy only humility ensures true freedomHow humility enables you to see God -- not as a vague presence, but as a Person who knows and loves youHow humility helps you to see the dignity of every person (even the dignity of those you're tempted to scorn)How humility lets you hear God calling you personally to life with HimWhy you best imitate Christ, Mary, and the saints by striving for humilityAnd much more!

"Humility" is a full work on the subject of humility from a brilliant Catholic philosopher and theologian, and I think almost anyone could use something from the book in their quest for humility.
