Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

Pride

“Pride compromises every good deed, empties prayer, creates distance from God and from others.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: The Catechism of the Catholic Church (1866) classifies “pride” as one of the seven capital sins that oppose one of the four cardinal virtues (prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance) or three theological virtues (faith, hope, and love). The capital sins of pride, greed, envy, anger, gluttony, lust, and sloth causes other sins. Which of the capital sins do you struggle with most? During this month, bring each of the virtues and vices to prayer and invite the Holy Spirit to draw you closer.
