“True peace dwells only in the heart of the humble: but the heart of the proud is ever full of pride and jealousy.”

Thomas Á Kempis

The proud are jealous because they think they deserve all things but the humble know that all is gift.  As we near Holy Week, think of Jesus, seeing the forces joining like a storm against him.  How many other ‘Gethsemane gardens’ did he have during this time?  Did he ever think, “perhaps I could just retreat to the hills, away from this madness!”  But he chose humble love, humble peace, humble obedience to love in a world ruled by hate and self-interest.
