Chapter 7: Humility

Ladder of Humility

RB 7:7-9 –  7 Without doubt, this descent and ascent can signify only that we descend by exaltation and ascend by humility. 8 Now, the ladder erected is our life on earth, and if we humble our hearts the Lord will raise it to heaven. 9 We may call our body and soul the sides of this ladder, into which our divine vocation has fitted the various steps of humility and discipline as we ascend.
