Josemaría Escrivá Obras

They ignored what you call your “rights”, which I translated for you as your “right to be proud”. What a grotesque figure you cut. Because your attacker was powerful you could not defend yourself and you felt the pain of a hundred blows. And despite it all, you have not learned to humble yourself.

Now your conscience accuses you, calling you proud... and cowardly. —Give thanks to God because you are beginning to catch a glimpse of your “duty to be humble”.
