Thy Kingdom Come!
Dear Friends, in Christ,
“Each person’s pride is in competition with every one else’s pride. It is because I wanted to be the big noise at the party that I am so annoyed at someone else being the big noise…Pride is essentially competitive.” CS Lewis
My spiritual director in the seminary told me many years ago, “Br. Michael, instead of being jealous of other people’s qualities and virtues, why not try to learn from them? Study what they are doing right and try to follow their good example…but don’t bring them down out of envy.” Sound advice that had a huge and immediate impact on my personal and spiritual life both then and now.
