A Thomistic Litany of Humility

The article below is taken from Dominicana and there is a link at the end of this piece that will take you to Dominicana website, which is website that Dominican friars in training write articles on.

 

Cardinal Merry del Val’s classic Litany of Humility is known to many Catholics. It’s a powerfully worded prayer, one that always makes a splash. However, revisiting it as a Dominican, the litany raises questions for me. There surges within me a need to make distinctions…or even to write a new litany.

Dominican friars aren’t always known for humility, yet St. Thomas Aquinas has left us quite a rich inheritance on the subject. Thomas fundamentally roots humility in a true knowledge of reality, of one’s strengths and weaknesses. He details humility’s opposition both to pride, the queen of all vices, and indirectly to vainglory, pride’s first lieutenant. He also identifies the pitfalls of false humility. And unknown to many, Thomas links humility with magnanimity, that virtue which propels us to real greatness. Magnanimity keeps humility from turning us into doormats.

With the help of a few friars, I offer this litany of humility based on St. Thomas:

O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, teach me.

From all pride and its effects, deliver me, Jesus.
From coveting greatness for its own sake or to excess, etc.
From contempt of You and Your law,
From a puffed-up self-image,
From claiming to be a self-made man,
From ingratitude for Your gifts,
From thinking that I have earned Your gifts by my effort alone,
From boasting of having what I do not have,
From excusing my faults while judging others,
From wishing to be the sole possessor of the skills I have,
From setting myself before others,

From all vainglory, deliver me, Jesus.
From craving praise for its own sake, etc.
From looking for flattery,
From withholding glory from You,
From showing off to the harm of my neighbor,
From presumption and false self-confidence,
From boastfulness,
From hypocrisy,
From the excessive need to be fashionable,
From obstinacy and contention,
From disobedience,

From all false humility, deliver me, Jesus.
From forfeiting my dignity as a child of God, etc.
From burying the talents that You gave me,
From an unreasonable fear of failure,
From avoiding my true vocation,
From despair at my weakness,

In the ways of humility, teach me, Jesus.
To know my limits and my strengths, etc.
To acknowledge the depravity of my past sins,
To acclaim You as the author of all the good I do,
To put my confidence in You,
To be subject to You and Your Church,
To be subject to others for Your sake,
To revere Your presence in others,
To rejoice in Your gifts in others, even the gifts unseen,

To do great things by Your help and for Your glory, strengthen me, Jesus.
To seek greatness in heavenly things and lasting virtue, etc.
To do my best even when unnoticed,
To put my share of Your gifts at Your service,
To be neither puffed up by honor nor downcast by shame,
To do penance for my sins and those of others,
Above all, to strive to love You with all my being,
And to love my neighbor as myself,

In Your name, I pray. Amen.

OREMUS COMMUNICATIONS FEBRUARY 2017 NEWSLETTER

 

Hello everyone!

We hope that you are all doing well in every way including your efforts to achieve spiritual growth through prayer, sacrifice, fasting and so on.

We are so glad for your support as we at Oremus Communications, also, try to grow; and as we try to encourage others to do likewise through our various programs. (For details concerning our ministry including program schedule for the OREMUS COMMUNICATIONS FAMILY ROSARY PROGRAM (OCFRP) and OUR LADY OF FATIMA NOVENA PRAYER PROGRAM (OLOFNPP), Mission Statement, Dedication, Archives, Live Streaming and much more, please, log onto: http://www.oremuscomms.com/ and check the menu section on the left side listing the various pages.)

The month of February promises to be an excellent opportunity to live our faith, especially, as we get ready to enter the Season of Lent at the start of the next month, the month of March.

Specifically, we are looking at the various Feast Days on the Church Calendar and see many opportunities to pray to some of the Great Saints for their assistance. One such Feast Day, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes offers us the opportunity to honor and to pray to Our Blessed Mother herself!

Accordingly, we are planning for a very special Novena Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes on February 11. In addition, we will be blessed in having several great guest co-hosts join us on the OCFRP.

Beginning on February 4, Fr. Peter Welsh who is the Parochial Vicar at St. Helena Parish in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and also the, the Spiritual Director of Regina Pacis Spanish Curia of the Legion of Mary will be in our studio to pray with us and to talk about Our Lady of Lourdes.

Next Mr. Steve Bozza from the Family Life Office of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will join the OCFRP on Tuesday, February 7 to talk about his impressions of the March For Life in Washington, D.C.

Keeping with the theme of Right to Life, Kathy Bond, Co- Chairperson of the pro-life committee at the Parish of St. Simon and Jude in West Chester will stop by on Tuesday, February 14th and talk about her Spiritual Growth while praying on the front lines for life at all stages of the life spectrum.

Finally, our good friends, Mr. Carl Malburg from the International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our lady of Fatima Foundation and Charlie DeFeo from the Order of Lay Dominicans will be back with followup appearances from their last visits on the 15th and 24th respectively.

We hope to see and hear from you on these various occasions as we strive to make a spiritual difference!

What Would You Wish For If Told You Were Going to Die Within 24 Hours?

This entire excerpt below is from the Book : Resisting Happiness by Matthew Kelly, chapter 10, Get Busy Living, P.50-51.

The wish list below was compiled by the author Matthew Kelly’s interview with a handful of hospice nurses who listed for Matthew what dying people they ministered to wished they had done differently in their life:

-I wish I had the courage to just be myself

-I wish I had spent more time with the people I love

-I wish I had made spirituality more of a priority

-I wish I hadn’t spent so much time working

-I wish I had discovered my purpose earlier

-I wish I had learned to express my feelings more

-I wish I hadn’t spent so much time worrying about things that never happened

-I wish I had taken more risks

-I wish I had cared less about what other people thought

-I wish I had realized earlier that happiness is a choice

-I wish I had loved more

-I wish I had taken better care of myself

-I wish I had been a better spouse

-I wish I had paid less attention to other people’s expectations

-I wish I had quit my job and found something else I really enjoyed doing

-I wish I had stayed in touch with old friends

-I wish I had spoken my mind more

-I wish I hadn’t spent so much time chasing the wrong things

-I wish I’d had more children

-I wish I had touched more lives

-I wish I had thought about life’s big questions earlier

-I wish I had traveled more

-I wish I had lived more in the moment

-I wish I had pursued more of my dreams

These are the regrets of dying people, people who were out of time. Each of them contains a powerful lesson for those of us who are still living.

It is good and healthy to think about death from time to time. It puts things in perspective and reminds us what really matters. The perspective that death is inevitable reminds us to get busy living.

Key Point – It is healthy to reflect on the fact that life is short and we are all going to die.

Action step – If you died today, what would you wish you had done differently?

Reflect!

Catechism of Catholic Church Teaching, #66 and 67

This is taken from Catechism In a Year daily emails from Flocknote (Copyright USCCB – United States Conference of Catholic Bishops). As I always proclaim, My Bible is my daily playbook and the Cathechism of The Catholic Church (CCC) is my weekly game plan. I need both to succeed on the battlefield or gridiron and in the game we call LIFE!!! By adhering to both I can continue to Walk by Faith to Live Joyfully and I encourage you to do same. God bless as always!
