Each month SportsLeader prays a novena, which is 9 consecutive days of prayer.
Today is Day 1 of our March novena. We will be praying the Novena through and including Thursday March 9.
If you would like to receive a daily reminder about the novena please respond to this email.
Our prayer this month will be The Litany of Humility. May we all grow in the virtue of humility so as to better serve our Lord in this wonderful ministry of sports.
Here are some inspiring quotes from some Saints about this essential virtue:
To be taken with love for a soul, God does not look on its greatness, but the greatness of its humility.
--St John of the Cross, OCD
“It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.”
He who wants to learn true humility should reflect upon the Passion of Jesus. (267)
-- St Faustina, Divine Mercy in my Soul
The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For, as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it.
--Saint Vincent de Paul
Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.
There is more value in a little study of humility and in a single act of it than in all the knowledge in the world.
--Saint Teresa of Avila
