Josemaría Escrivá Obras

Since you feel you have been chosen by God to support and co—redeem — without forgetting that you are... wretched and utterly so — your humility should lead you to place yourself under the feet — at the service — of all. This is what the supports of a building do.

But foundations need to be strong. Fortitude is an indispensable virtue for someone who has to sustain or encourage others.

—Say this to Jesus and say it to him strongly: May I never through false humility stop practising the cardinal virtue of fortitude. Make me know how to separate, my God, the gold from the dross.
