Like many of you I struggle with pride. And sometimes with one of the worst kinds empty pride. But the most heinous of them all to me is Spiritual pride! Because with it we can say and do things such that it leads others astray.

There are many who behave as though they are holier than the Pope and sometimes even present ideas contrary to Church teachings. While there are also others who are quick to comment on the shortcomings of others labeling them as being spiritually prideful while claiming themselves to be spiritually sound by their ‘silence’. This is still PRIDE of another shade.

I have taken extra care to share the faith through study, following the teachings of the Church and striving to lead an authentic life in the Lord because I know I am accountable to Him when I pass on. What did you feed my lambs? What did you feed my sheep? He will surely ask even though He would already know…

So let us pray for one another especially, for all Spiritual leaders, priests and religious. That we do the will of our Heavenly Father always. Amen
