The Seventeen Evidences of a Lack of Humility

Blessed Miguel Pro praying before his execution.

1. To think that what one says or does is better than what others say or do.

2. To always to want to get your own way.

3. To argue with stubbornness and bad manners whether you are right or wrong.

4. To give your opinion when it has not been requested or when charity does not demand it.

5. To look down on another's point of view.

6. Not to look on your gifts and abilities as lent.

7. Not to recognize that you are unworthy of all honors and esteem, not even of the earth you walk on and things you possess.

8. To use yourself as an example in conversations.

9. To speak badly of yourself so that others will think well of you or contradict you.

10. To excuse yourself when you are corrected.

11. To hide humiliating faults from your spiritual director, so that he will not change the impression he has of you.

12. To take pleasure in praise and compliments.

13. To be saddened because others are held in higher esteem.

14. To refuse to perform inferior tasks.

15. To seek to stand out.

16. To refer in conversation to your honesty, genius, dexterity, or professional prestige.

17. To be ashamed because you lack certain goods.

- From the Writings of St. Josemaria Escriva

Prayer to Our Lady of the Mysterious Decapitation

Mary my mother, take my hand today, and all days.
Lead me away from all occasions of sin.
Guide me in fulfilling your last words in the Gospel,
"Do whatever He tells you."
