Litany of Humility

O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.

From the desire of being esteemed…

**Deliver me, Jesus**

Fromm the desire of being loved…

From the desire of being extolled …

From the desire of being honored …

From the desire of being praised …

From the desire of being preferred to others…

From the desire of being consulted …

From the desire of being approved …

From the fear of being humiliated …

From the fear of being despised…

From the fear of suffering rebukes …

From the fear of being calumniated …

From the fear of being forgotten …

From the fear of being ridiculed …

From the fear of being wronged …

From the fear of being suspected …

That others may be loved more than I,

**Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.**

That others may be esteemed more than I …

That, in the opinion of the world,
others may increase and I may decrease …


That others may be chosen and I set aside …


That others may be praised and I unnoticed …


That others may be preferred to me in everything…


That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should…
