                  The Bishop's Corner                 

bishop     From the Bishop  September 13th  

Dear People of the Diocese of New Jersey,

And being found in human form,
he humbled himself
     and became obedient to the point of death—
     even death on a cross.

              —Philippians 2:8

A priest-friend of mine and I were in conversation some years ago. The topic of humility came up. “Oh yeah,” he said, “I got an ‘A’ in humility in seminary.” We both laughed. I thought it was pretty funny then. I still think it’s funny. Humility in Christian thought is always contrasted with pride and boastfulness.
