We Are Not Cosmic Accidents

  • Published on:  10/3/2018
  • Without our dignity that comes from God, we are just cosmic accidents. This is a humbling realization, but one that can also be empowering. Fr. Mike says we often misunderstand humility because we think it involves thinking less of ourselves. What it really involves is greater focus on God’s power and goodness, because he is the source of whatever power and goodness we have.

    As C.S. Lewis wrote, “A really humble man will not be thinking about humility. He will not be thinking about himself at all.”
