Daily Minute Meditation

On the Small Number of the Lovers of the Cross (cont.)

If we were to give up all our possessions, it is still nothing; if we did sever penance, still are we far from virtue. Even if we had great virtue and fervent devotion, we would be lacking that one thing necessary above all else. What is the one thing necessary above all else? That leaving all things behind, we should leave self, renouncing our self completely.

Then we will be truly poor in spirit and able to say with the Prophet: "I am alone and poor" (Ps 25:16). Yet there is no one richer or more powerful, or more free than we are if we know how to renounce ourselves and all things, putting ourselves in the lowest place.
