Weakness into Wisdom...

Painting by Frederick Sandys
"Since a humble heart is the vessel needed,
 the vessel capable of containing the grace
 God wants to pour into it,
 let us be humble.
The humble can never rank God high enough
 nor themselves low enough. 
 But, here is the wonder:
 their weakness turns into wisdom,
and the imperfections of their acts,
 always insufficient in their eyes,
 will be the greatest delight of their life."
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity
