"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

“Raised Up”

Acts Of Apostles 5:30
The God of our fathers hath raised up Jesus, whom you put to death, hanging him upon a tree.

O’ humility, this was the scene

Wherest I knelt in the mud of my past to kiss Thy Feet

Along side the Womb of our Eternal Seed, Mother Mary

O’ blind as I constantly may be
Thou still wouldst redeem
For in just one drop of Thy Blood,
The whole world couldst once again clearly see
Worthy? Not hardly…
For I am lower than the dirt beneath thy grass of green
I too lived lonely for so long on self’s one way street
How often have I left Thee neglected, naked and hungry
Proudly “fanning out” Thy Flame of Charity
Because my disdain envoked the rain amidst this pain of Calvary
That painted mystically this quench of sinners soul’s still thirsty
It is here wherest my heart adjoined with Thee
Nailed twice over unseen uponst this same tree
An eagles arms perpetually spread in Faith and Hope
All this You wouldst dare to share with me?
Upon this holy hill void of want for Thou still art our only need
Longing Thee ... A Source without End and End without beginning
But in this upward journey
An ascent of the soul
Amidst the weeds my heart still silently didst greed
But my Beloved came forth and with the key of chastity
Handed over His Heart that I might be freed
O’ purity, what thence wouldst thou have of me?
For so long my feet danced to the tune of self who didst alone lead...
Ready to impede, ready to snuff out all good deeds!
But Thou scanned my torn & hardened cover only to further read...
Every page that offended and madest Thine own Heart bleed
I watch as others passed paying no heed, for they are too busy
The worldly whose eyes stay fixed upon the surface horizontally
O’ what trainwreck's art we! Living in the me’s “tunnel vision” so selflishly...
Who are now ready to be deceived by the New Age’s “sharing”
For it is He, who is One of the Three of the Most Holy Trinity
Who we point out to as King; Who in all our efforts we give the glory...
For now, no more, am I another ship lost out on this worlds seas...
Because now in silence I hear the Wind’s Wisdom speak
Whose lips gently profess humbly
This sinner’s creed,  for wherest I fall short You far past exceed
And so I asketh Thee, O’ Lord for thine mercy
Forgive me, Forgive me, Forgive me
And so thrice over my ticket was stamped to this Marriage eternally
Writing in red over my deeds of iniquity
All by thy Sacred Heart's Divine Love
For in nature’s sinful tendency  
My flesh would violently scream I can never “get enough”
Yet Thou still “broke down”, that I, unto this same unifying Love,
Might be, by thy grace, Raised up

Proverbs 15:33
The fear of the Lord is the lesson of wisdom: and humility goeth before glory.
To be taken with love for a soul, God does not look on its greatness, but the greatness of its humility.
--St  John of the Cross, OCD

Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.
--Saint Augustine

We should let God be the One to praise us and not praise ourselves. For God detests those who commend themselves. Let others applaud our good deeds.
--Pope St. Clement I

'If humble souls are contradicted, they remain calm; if they are calumniated, they suffer with patience; if they are little esteemed, neglected, or forgotten, they consider that their due; if they are weighed down with occupations, they perform them cheerfully.'
--St. Vincent de Paul

'The first degree of humility is the fear of God, which we should constantly have before our eyes.'
--St. Louis de Blois

The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For, as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it.
--Saint Vincent de Paul

Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.
--Saint Augustine

There is more value in a little study of humility and in a single act of it than in all the knowledge in the world.
--Saint Teresa of Avila

"It is no great thing to be humble when you are brought low; but to be humble when you are praised is a great and rare attainment."

Humility is the mother of many virtues because from it obedience, fear, reverence, patience, modesty, meekness and peace are born. He who is humble easily obeys everyone, fears to offend anyone, is at peace with everyone, is kind with all.
--St Thomas of Villanova

Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.
--Saint Augustine

Indeed a humble rustic who serves God is better than a proud intellectual who neglects his soul to study the course of the stars.
--Imitation of Christ

A proud and avaricious man never rests, whereas he who is poor and humble of heart lives in a world of peace. The humble live in continuous peace, while in the hearts of the proud are envy and frequent anger.
--Imitation of Christ

It is a virtue and a prize to listen patiently to and put up with insults for the sake of God
--Revelations of St. Bridget

Humility does not disturb or disquiet or agitate, however great it may be; it comes with peace, delight, and calm. . . . The pain of genuine humility doesn’t agitate or afflict the soul; rather, this humility expands it and enables it to serve God more.
--St teresa of Avila

"Speaking absolutely, humility excels virginity."
--St. Thomas

'As patience leads to peace, and study to science, so are humiliations the path that leads to humility.'
--St. Bernard of Clairvaux

"No one reaches the kingdom of Heaven except by humility"
--St Augustine

" There never can have been, and never can be, and there never shall be any sin without pride."
--St Augustine

"Humility, which is a virtue, is always fruitful in good works."
--St. Thomas

"You cannot attain to charity except through humility."
--St. Augustine

"I make bold to say that it is profitable for the proud to fall, in order that they may be humbled in that for which they have exalted themselves.
--St. Augustine

The highest point of humility consists in not merely acknowledging one's abjection, but in taking pleasure therein, not from any want of breadth or courage, but to give the more glory to God's Divine Majesty, and to esteem one's neighbour more highly than one's self.
--St Francis De Sales

'There is no doubt that God will never be wanting to us, provided that He finds in us that humility which makes us worthy of His gifts, the desire of possessing them, and the promptitude to co-operate industriously with the graces He gives us.'
--St. Ignatius of Loyola

Humility makes our lives acceptable to God, meekness makes us acceptable to men.
--St Francis De Sales
