Father Cantalamessa: Lessons in Christian Humility
The power of Christian humility was the focus of the third Lenten homily given this year by the preacher of the Pontifical Household, Capuchin Father Raniero Cantalamessa.
“The truly humble person is the one who strives to have the heart of Jesus,” Fr. Cantalamessa said. He went on to provide insights from Paul’s letter to the Romans:
I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment. . . . Do not be haughty but associate with the lowly; never be wise in your own sight. (Rom 12:3, 16)
