A Quote on Humility

He [Benedict] says that humility means that we know our place in the universe, both in relation to God and i realtion to our fellow human beings. Humility is not groveling, nor is it some false notion that somehow we are not as good as the next guy.  Rather it embraces so much who we truly are that groveling and comparisons to other people never enter into it.

From the Community of Hope participants’ manual, 6th ed. 4/30/06. Emphases added are mine.
