Description

2023 Reprint of the 1944 edition. Originally published in 1903, this a reprint of the 1944 edition published by the Newman Bookshop.  Fr. Cajetan Mary da Bergamo was a Franciscan friar who became known in the eighteenth century as a theologian who produced many volumes of writings on a wide range of religious subjects. He is best remembered for his book Humility of Heart, a storehouse of wisdom for Catholics regarding the importance of humility in any spiritual undertaking. Examples of his wisdom are:

 "It is only by the measure of your humility that thou canst hope to please God and save thyself, because it is certain that God 'will save the humble of spirit."

"As paradise is only for the humble, therefore in paradise everyone will have more or less glory according to his degree of humility."

"Humility generates confidence, and God never refuses His grace to those who come to Him with humility and trust."

These are only a few samples of the gems of wisdom contained in Humility of Heart. Fr. Cajetan da Bergamo has assembled in this Catholic classic every conceivable motive for us to practice the virtue of humility. From every direction, provides reasons why this virtue is paramount in the lives of all Saints and of all those on the way to spiritual realization. As no one will enter Heaven who is not perfect and as no one will gain perfection who is not humble, it behooves us all to apprise ourselves of the requisites for gaining true humility of heart, for once possessing this virtue, we can then make great strides in other aspects of spiritual life. But without it, we are simply deceiving ourselves regarding our spiritual progress and postponing the great work of our own spiritual pursuits.
