I've always loved the Cardinal's Litany of Humility. What a goal! (What a challenge!)

Two of the most humble people I have ever known worked in a Church thrift shop for so many years, and volunteered in many other service (and pastoral) areas as well. Only those who knew they sent their three (adopted) children to parochial schools could have guessed they had money, for they both kept all their goods moderate, including house, car and wardrobe.

Not until their obituaries did we see all the civic honors they'd garnered over the years; but the poor, from whom we did not hear, spoke the most eloquently in their honor with tears of grief and gratitude at the funeral Masses.
