  • Spirituality & Practice offers "The Challenge of Humility" by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat. Excerpts: "Humility comes naturally to some people but usually it needs to be learned. We become humble by being around humble people and by consciously acknowledging that we are not #1." | "Many of the great spiritual masters practiced what could be called "downward mobility." Jesus, for example, encouraged his disciples to create a community of equals. After they argued over who was the greatest, he knelt before them and washed their feet. "I am among you," he said another time, "as one who serves." Strive to create the conditions in the world that will lead to a this kind of community. In daily life, this means working to break down the barriers that separate people and put the rich over the poor, the able-bodied over the disabled, the literate over the illiterate, the strong over the weak. Reread the Beatitudes (Matthew 5: 3 - 11) for more specifics."

  • Inner Frontier offers some wise suggestions for practicing humility.

  • Inner Frontier offers "Prayer" by Joseph Naft in which he says that "Humility, the one essential quality for entering the sacred, arises naturally through sincere prayer and also enables it."

  • Father Pius offers wisdom on this practice from THE DESERT FATHERS & MOTHERS.

  • 12 Degrees offers ST. BENEDICT'S 'LADDER OF HUMILITY'
