Humility is the key to all the virtues. It’s the necessary foundation for growth in all the others. If we do not know ourselves—if we cannot see our flaws and strengths (but especially our flaws)—clearly, how can we grow in virtue? How can we begin to make ourselves less and God more?

Indeed, in our age of social media where it’s a constant race to appear the best, to put up a front, to show others a false image (and to show ourselves a false image) cultivating humility is perhaps more important now than ever.

Know Thyself then is an invaluable resource for a prideful age. Adapted from Rev. Fr. Cajetan da Bergamo’s classic Humility of Heart and supplemented with writings from the saints and powerful scripture passages, Know Thyself will reinvigorate you each day in the struggle to be like Christ, to be “meek and humble of heart.”

This beautiful hardcover book—with updated language for the contemporary reader and reorganized with a logical progression—is perfect for everyday use. New features that help you put your reading into spiritual action include:
  • Saint quotes for every day followed by a short meditation on humility
  • Prayers for Humility and Scripture Verses on Humility
  • Guided meditations that will bring about a deeper self-knowledge
Are you having problems in a family relationship? Struggling to find fulfillment in your work? Do you find it difficult to have regular, deep prayer? Whatever your struggle, growing in true humility will help solve it.

Spend the next 100 days with this book—spend the next 100 days contemplating, meditating upon, and growing in humility—and your problems, your struggles will improve. That’s the power of humility, and that’s the power of Know Thyself.
