Horrified But Not Surprised, We Find Love

Bede Jarrett, a Dominican priest from England, before the time of his death in 1934 once wrote: “If we were truly humble, we should never be astonished to find ourselves giving way to sin. We should indeed be horrified but not surprised . . . Once we have really begun to try to see what we are like, we recognize ourselves to be the most evil of creatures. This is no mock humility, for there is no room for anything mock in the spiritual life. This is true humility . . . God wishes me out of my past sin to come nearer to him, to find somewhere in that unhappy past a motive too for love.”
