True humility of the heart does not need to be recognizable outwardly, it just often hides behind an impenetrable nature, for true humility is not meant for men, but for God and creator from eternity; true humility does not dare to come out; it goes quiet, lonely ways in modesty and never steps out; it is without all self-love, but always makes an effort to also put to fellowmen the greatness and holiness of God before the eyes, because it itself feels it how small and needy man is to his holiness.

Humility.

26. and 27. January 1953. B.D. NR. 5587.

Approach God in all humility, and he will lean towards you full of love. Listen to the voice of your heart; do not become of an arrogant spirit, where his love becomes obvious for you, but always remain devoted to him in humility, then the measure of favour is inexhaustible, which he pours out over you, then you are truly his children, who have found the way to the father heart. Humility must completely fill you, and also the greatest gift of love is not allowed to let you become arrogant, for it is only his extreme great love, which gives you that gift, but not your worthiness. What is weak, is lovingly seen by God, as soon as it recognizes its weakness and restrains itself from eternal love in all humility. Then it is truly covered by a fullness of favour, which secures a high ascent for you. And so a simple explanation is given to you men, when and how God gives away his gifts of favour; information is given to you, what alone is necessary to receive a richest measure of favour. Humility is put up as that virtue, which is seen by God with eyes of love, which moves him, to renounce himself to hand out a wealth of favours, which certainly leads man to the destination, to the unification of the child with the father. As a child comes to meet the father in all humility, so also man must feel humble to the eternal father. But where humility declines, there also God withdraws his favour. But humility demands nothing for itself; humility feels so infinitely small to the divinity, which it well suspects, but does not dare to address it. Real humility will just produce babble; it will not be able to express itself with words, because it does not dare to direct words towards the highest being, which with one thought can already destroy, what it once has created. Humility is silent and just falls down before the face of God, pleading for his mercy. Humility patiently waits until it is raised by his kind hand. And where you men recognize this humility, there the current of favour also flows into the heart uninterruptedly, there the presence of God is visible, there the connection is created from earth to heaven, there God himself leans to earth and fills the vessel with his favour, which is offered to him open, the heart, which humbly devotes itself to God in the cognition of its unworthiness and weakness. (27.1.1953) For the humility of the heart is the highest ornament of the soul; it opens as it were the gate to the spiritual kingdom; it opens the source of favour, for where humility is, is also love for God, whom the soul acknowledges as over holy being, to whom it hardly dares to look up, but whom it strives for, to whom it would like to give for himself totally: The devotion of the soul full of humility to its creator and father from eternity is the shortest way to him, for a powerful wave of love and favour carries it over all obstacles to the heart of the father, who graciously draws it to himself, because a humble soul is pleasing to him. True humility of the heart does not need to be recognizable outwardly, it just often hides behind an impenetrable nature, for true humility is not meant for men, but for God and creator from eternity; true humility does not dare to come out; it goes quiet, lonely ways in modesty and never steps out; it is without all self-love, but always makes an effort to also put to fellowmen the greatness and holiness of God before the eyes, because it itself feels it how small and needy man is to his holiness. And it will find favour in excess for its whole nature is detestation of the former sin of defection from God, whom it would never ever like to insult and who therefore seizes its complete will turned towards him and draws the soul to himself in hottest merciful love.
Amen B.D. NR. 5587.
