On Becoming the Publican in the Temple: St. Benedict's Degrees of Humility

Tuesday, May 8- Thursday, May 10, 2018
Location: Archabbey Guest House and Retreat Center

(Midweek Retreat)

"Self-exaltation leads to humiliation; self-humbling leads to exaltation." St. Benedict's 12 degrees of humility (RB Chapter 7) begin with this declaration of the Lord in the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector in the temple (Luke 18:9-14) and concludes with the tax collector as a model of humility. The Ladder of Humility invites a descent into humility that leads to being raised up by God. This progress "downward" in humility leads to the emergence of charity and the firm hope of sharing in God's glory.
