Jesus Christ is a great lord, rich and powerful, Who doesn’t have necessity for our goods. What gift can we give Him if the whole world is His?… This is the most pleasing gift we can give:  a clean heart, contrite and humble. He only wants from us our hearts.

Humility is the fountain of all other virtues; don’t limit humility, make of it the principal one of all your actions.
