Humiliation makes you resemble Jesus, it is an unavoidable aspect of the imitation of Christ (Gaudete et exsultate 118).
John 7:1-2. 10. 25-30
‘I know him because I am from him and he sent me.’
Look at our Lady as our Lord hung on the Cross and bled to death. Humanly speaking it must have been very difficult for her. But on the other hand she was convinced that through this suffering the world would be redeemed and Almighty God infinitely glorified. So as the sword pierced her heart she could say: Vast as the ocean is my pain, but also: Vast as the ocean is my joy. (5 May 1958 – JK)
