Humility is the basis and guardian of all virtue. The Lord has promised to hear the prayers of all. The proud he hears with a deaf ear and he resists their petitions, but to the humble, he is liberal beyond measure. To them He opens His hands and grants whatsoever they ask or desire. Through our prayer we gain this grace, for it is only in humility that we are able to bring fruit to our lives.
Humble your soul before the Lord and expect from His hands whatever you seek.
