Be merciful,
just as your Father is merciful.
To clothe the naked

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience” (Col 3, 12). Who is elegant in the virtue, can share clothing with whom does not have it, and, through contagion, increases the clothing for everybody.

The clothing, a gift from the creator to our first parents, represents the dignity lost because of the arrogance we demonstrated willing to be like God. Humility returns dignity to the human person. “Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.” (Rev 3, 17-18)

 

 

 
 

 Humility

 
 

         Whenever I am small, I find God, and when I cease to be small, I lose Him. (18-12-60)

         I received all I had, I have received all I have and I will receive all I will have. What do I boast about, since I do not possess anything of myself, but depend on another? (8-5-70)

         When man becomes proud, being neither what he is through himself, nor having what he has through himself; this poor creature then does not even have the faculty of true discernment. (8-5-70)

         Humility is light, pride is darkness. The humble unite themselves with God, who is Light; the proud resist God, stray from Him and are engulfed in gloom. (21-1-65)

         Humility lies not in talking too much or too little, but in talking with humility and according to truth and in knowing how to keep prudent silence. (15-1-67)

         When I truly sought You, I became lost and, then, in the light of Your eternal wisdom and immersed in the sacred mystery, I saw that, to find You, I have to lose myself. (18-12-60)

         When the nothingness of your misery causes your being to fall down to the ground, sink then into your poverty and adore from the abyss of silence; for then you are in the fellowship of the blessed adoring the Being in His being. (18-12-60)
