“Who is like unto God!”

With St. Michael, let us cry: “Who is like unto God!” And let us humble ourselves:

There are weaknesses God frees us from, but others He leaves with us, precisely so that we stay small and poor, dependent on His grace, compelled to keep calling out to Him all the time. Blessed weaknesses that impel us to call on God! For God hears the prayer of the poor and comes to help them. Sometimes He heals our weaknesses, but sometimes He gives us the grace to live with them trustingly, to accept them peacefully, and accept ourselves as weak and limited. That is real humility: to accept ourselves as we are, to love ourselves as we are. And it attracts God’s grace very powerfully. [The Way of Trust and Love, by Father Jacques-Philippe]
