This month in Little Flowers we are studying St. Catherine Laboure and Humility.

"If the people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

2 Chron. 7:14


I read through my Miraculous Medal Unit Study, and looked for violet coloring pages.


It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels. - Saint Augustine

Helen Keller:
I long to accomplish a great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.

Ralph Waldo Emerson:
Religion is to do right. It is to love, it is to serve, it is to think, it is to be humble.

Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
(Proverbs 3:34)

Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
(Proverbs 27:2)

The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, And before honour is humility.
--Proverbs 15:33

Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves.
--2 Philippians 2:3

It must be felt that there is no national security but in the nation's humble acknowledged dependence upon God and His overruling providence.
--John Adams

Humility is like underwear; essential, but indecent if it shows.
--Helen Nielsen

It takes humility to seek feedback. It takes wisdom to understand it, analyze it, and appropriately act on it.
--Stephen R. Covey First Things First

The road to success leads through the valley of humility, and the path is up the ladder of patience and across the wide barren plains of perseverance. As yet, no short cut has been discovered.
--Joseph. J. Lamb
