Mid-Day Reflection: Humility in Today’s World

UST Spiritual Formation Series Sponsored by the Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership in the Professions

Date & Time:

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Location:

MSL 244

St. Augustine called humility the foundation of all the virtues. St. Vincent de Paul attributed all of the graces he received to humility. St. Teresa believed that without humility, one could never profit from contemplation.

Humility is not a trait especially prized in our society today. Yet is it crucial virtue to cultivate in the fractious and polarizing environment that currently exists in our church, in our country and in our world.

What is true humility? Why is it a virtue? What does it mean for us to practice humility in our world today? These are the question we will address in this final mid-day reflection of the 2015-16 academic year.
