Padre Pio an example of Humility
St. Padre Pio spoke often about humility, and more importantly he truly practiced what he preached. He lived his life spurning fame and seeking only to please Christ. In spite of his wondrous gifts from God, he looked upon himself as a simple, sinful friar.
If you have ever had the occasion to feel the pain of recognizing your own sinfulness, you are at the beginning of true humility. Perhaps one of the blessings which can come from sin is the realization of our need for a Savior. It is when our heart aches because we know how far we can fall that we have a chance of becoming “meek and humble of heart”. When we crawl on our knees to the crib of the Infant Jesus and realize that we are more abased than a tiny, helpless child, then we finally understand the miracle of the Incarnation and the miracle of Christmas.
Humility, humility, and always humility, wrote Padre Pio. The Lord is willing to do great things but on the condition that we are truly humble. May we all come to possess the level of humility which Padre Pio achieved in his lifetime.
