The CCC (No. 1803) explains “A virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do the good. It allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of himself. The virtuous person tends toward the good with all his sensory and spiritual powers; he pursues the good and chooses it in concrete actions. ‘The goal of a virtuous life is to become like God’ (St Gregory of Nyssa, De beatitudinibus, 1).”
Humility is a virtue quite rare in an era of self-worship and self-obsession. Let us not forget that we are mere creatures and that only through humility can we draw near to the one who created us.
