First Day of Novena to St. Therese of the Infant Jesus and the Holy Face
Virgin of the Teresian Carmel
If any man think himself to be something, whereas he is nothing, he deceiveth himself (from the Lesson last Sunday, 15th after Pentecost, Gal. 5.25,26; 6.1-10). True humility is the basis of fraternal charity; anyone who is proud carries about with him a hotbed of discord for, preferring himself to others, he will often be provocative, envious, haughty, and disdainful of those whom he considers his inferiors.
