Exceptional Humility

Tonight we watched the funeral of Pope Benedict XVI. Of course it was attended by cardinals, bishops, priests, nuns, heads of state, and lay people. There has been a lot of talk the past few days of his great humility – particularly as he stepped down from his office realizing he was no longer able to perform his duties. What struck me the most was at the end of the Mass, his body was brought into the basilica for the burial. Following his casket were the 4 women who were his caretakers. They were in effect his family at the end of his life, as his biological family had already died. I thought of the humility it took on his part to allow himself to be cared for and the humility on the part of the 4 women whose portion of their lives were spent for him.

I Found God today in great acts of humility.
