In reflecting on today’s gospel, Saint Angela of Foligno, commented: See how Christ gave Himself as an example. Jesus told us to look at Him with the eyes of our souls. God said: “Learn from me. I am gentle. My soul is humble. You’ll find rest for your hearts here.” Pay attention to what Christ didn’t say. He didn’t say, “Learn to fast from Me” or “Learn to scorn the world and live in poverty” or “Learn from Me how to perform great miracles,” although He did each of these things well. No, instead Jesus said, “Learn from Me because I am gentle and humble in My soul.” The point is that Christ made humility and gentleness the foundation for every other virtue. Nothing else matters. Not integrity, not fasting, not poverty, not shabby clothing, not years of good works, not the accomplishment of miracles—none of these is important without a humble heart.
