This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."
Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

"Humility comes from the overwhelming realization that we get credit for NOTHING! Absolutely everything we are, everything we have and everything we accomplish is the direct result of God's gifts to us. God formed us and placed us in the exact family and circumstances that he wanted us to have. He provided the lifetime of love, care, nutrition and education that formed us in the people we are today. The personality traits that motivate us to work, achieve and accomplish are more gifts from God. even dissapointments and challenges that seem negative are often gifts to make us stronger. Thus looking back over our lives, we must humbly bow our heads and acknowldelge all we have is a gift from God. Our family, our home, our countless possessions, our job, our knowledge, our skills, our unique personality traits all come from God. they belong to God as surely we belong to God. If we truly see ourselves as children of God, we must realize everything we have belongs to Our Father."

Some people confuse humility with low self-worth. Humility is a virtue.
Low self-worth is thinking of yourself in a small way.
Humility is not thinking of yourself at all, period.
Why? Because you’re thinking of others more.
The Bible says, be humble towards one another, always considering others better than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)
In other words, a humble person sees every human being as a child of God and is worthy of his service.
Humility is emptying oneself by pouring ourselves to others.
