Conquer your pride and experience the joys of humility!
Of all sins, pride is the most dangerous . . . and the most sorrowful: it cuts you off from God, estranges you from others, and leaves you lost and unhappy.
These pages show you how to drive pride from your soul. You’ll learn to recognize its many forms (including some that masquerade as virtue), and you’ll come to see just why they’re such barriers to happiness and to holiness.
You’ll also discover the incredible strength of humility, the only virtue that has the power to expel every vestige of pride from your soul. These pages will help you to begin experiencing the joys of humility today.
