Lenten Devotionals Week Six

Week six of Lent we will focus on Humility. 

Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will exalt you. James 4:10

Raefel Cardinal Merry del Val composed the perfect prayer for Humility;

Litany of Humility
O Jesus! Meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
From the desire of being esteemed,
Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being loved
From the desire of being extolled
From the desire of being honored
From the desire of being praised
From the desire of being preferred to others
From the desire of being consulted
From the desire of being approved
From the fear of being humiliated
From the fear of being despised
From the fear of suffering rebukes
From the fear of being calumniated
From the fear of being forgotten
From the fear of being ridiculed
From the fear of being wronged
From the fear of being suspected
That others may be loved more than I
Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be esteemed more than I
That, in the opinion of the world,
Others may increase and I may decrease
That others may be chosen and I set aside
That others may be praised and I unnoticed
That others may be preferred to me in everything
That others may become holier than I, provided
that I may become as holy as I should.
Amen.
