The Christian lowers himself

The Christian lowers himself

“We should not put ourselves above others, but indeed lower ourselves, place ourselves a the service of others, become small with the small and poor with the poor. It is regrettable to see a Christian who does not want to lower himself, who does not want to serve. A Christian who struts about is ugly: this is not Christian, it is pagan. The Christian serves, he lowers himself.

-Pope Francis. December 18, 2013.
