Pope's Angelus: Leave pride aside and embrace humbleness

2012-09-24

BENEDICT XVI
"What does all this say to us? It reminds us that God's logic is always "other” with respect to our own, as God Himself revealed through the mouth of the prophet Isaiah: 'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways'”

Another difference is that of pride. As Benedict XVI continued his catechesis on the Gospel of St. Mark, he explained that people have a desire to be first and to be great, but God, said the Pope, welcomes humbleness.

BENEDICT XVI
"We, who are little, desire to appear great, to be the first, while God, who is truly great, does not fear to humble Himself and make Himself the last.”

The Pope then added that pride is deeply rooted in humans, making it something that requires constant vigilance and purification. Instead, the Pope called on Christians to focus on the Passion of Jesus, as a measure of true greatness.
