St. Camillus de Lellis
"Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light" (Matthew 11: 28-30).
Pride and arrogance are unfortunately common among great athletes. Some of them think that their physical talent makes them superior to others. This is ridiculous since talents are really gifts from God so we can serve others with them. The quickest way to distance yourself from God is by being proud and arrogant.
Lord, help me to always recognize when I am falling into the weakness of pride.
