CHAPTER 7 HUMILITY - The Way to God

Now, therefore, after ascending all these steps of humility, we will quickly arrive at the “perfect love” of God which “casts out fear (1 Jn 4:18).” (RB 7:67)

Is my motivation in life a movement away from fear toward love? Am I striving for human perfection or growing into a relationship of love? Humility opens us to receive God’s love. One who has arrived at the final step of humility does not think about her/his own achievements or success – she/he sees only the gift of God’s love given freely to one and all.
