A Supreme Act of Humility

A Supreme Act of Humility

St. Francis of Assisi saw God as humble
because God is always inclined
toward another.
In the Trinity, Francis saw goodness
giving itself away,
completely and inexhaustively.

God, who has no limits, chose
to take on the limitations
of a material being.
In doing so, God had to have
his diapers changed.
Taking on our limitations
was a supreme act of humility.
