What Is Humility? Hint: It’s NOT Thinking Worse About Yourself

The Saints and the Scriptures tell us over and over again that Pride is the worst sin, maybe the root of all sin.

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary defines what the virtue of humility is, as the antidote to pride and how we can grow in it and wrestle with it.
