True Humility

        Today is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is our loving intercessor and a great model for us to imitate.  Her most notable virtue is humility.  Humility is not believing that we are the lowest and letting everyone trample on us or that we are useless and thereby remain idle.  True humility is selfless obedience to the will of God, which may call forth our courage, boldness, and resolve.
        A footnote.  Humility also takes the form of not speaking unfavorably about anyone or making someone look bad before others.  I am still working on it.
