Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

The seventh step of humility is when he declares not only with his tongue, but also believes with the deepest sentiment of his heart that he is inferior to all and of less worth, humbling himself and saying with the prophet: ‘But I am a worm and not a man, the scorn of men and the reject of the crowds’ (Ps 22:7). ‘I was exalted, then I was both humbled and thrown into confusion’ (Ps 88:16). And likewise: ‘It was good for me that you humbled me, so that I might learn your commandments’ (Ps 118:71, 73).

 

-- Rule of St. Benedict 7.51-54 (from chap. 7 on the twelve steps of humility)
