The Powerless Leader

At times, you may become discouraged when you pray because your sins seem to jump out at you. You may actually feel worse than ever. But don’t let that get you down. It’s actually a sign of progress because the closer you draw to the perfect holiness of God, the more your own imperfections will stand out against the pure light of His holiness. It’s like standing next to a sky-scraper: The closer you stand, the smaller you feel. This explains why really holy people are often the last ones to admit it, because the holier they get, the less holy they feel (so I’ve heard).”

—Fr. Augustine Wetta, OSB, from his book “Humility Rules”
