Whoever exalts himself will be humbled. (Mt 23:12)

Pride sets subtle snares. Whenever we imagine that we are in control of life --- our own or someone else's --- we have fallen prey to the ancient whisper in the Garden: "You shall be like gods." Mortality is the enduring reminder that we become like God not by our own power but by the power of the cross. ~Magnificat
