Let Man Blush to Be Proud

January 22, 2016

If they shall have no dominion over me, then I shall be without spot, and I shall be cleansed from great sin. – Psalm 19:13

β€œIt was because of this vice, because of this enormous sin of pride, that God came in humility. This enormous sin, this monstrous disease of souls, was the very thing which brought the almighty Physician down from heaven, humbled Him even to taking the form of a slave, exposed Him to ignominy, hung Him upon the tree, that by the saving strength of so potent a remedy this tumor might be healed. And now finally let man blush to be proud, for whose sake God has become humble.” – St. Augustine
