Today we are continuing on with the Virtues of the Rosary series on the Just One Small Thing Podcast. Today I am tackling the virtue of Humility which is assigned to the 3rd Sorrowful Mystery, the Crowing of Thorns.
As just a quick reminder, I did not dream up the idea of assigning a virtue to each mystery of the rosary–I’m just promoting something taught by many great saints included St. Padre Pio, St. John Paul II and St. Mother Teresa. It my hope that this series gives you lots to think about as you pray your daily rosary. I love mediating on the virtues as I pray–and if you would like a tool to help you reflect a bit more, I encourage you to download and use a set of FREE coloring pages, one for each mystery of the rosary. They are full of powerful quotes from the saints on each of the virtues. Find them here: https://www.dosmallthingswithlove.com/virtue
Humility is the virtue that St. Mother Teresa called the most important virtue and this is because it makes all of the other virtues possible.
Ture humility is simply knowing how God is and who you are.
In the episode I spent a lot of time talking about witnessing my sister take her final vows a month ago, so if you are curious about that, make sure to listen in.
I also shared 15 rules Mother Teresa laid out for pursuing humility. Here they are:
Wow--I have a LOT to work on, do you?
