Humility is the quality of being humble. Humility comes from the Latin word humilis, which literally means low. Someone who spends his or her life taking care of others shows humility. Although it’s related to humiliation (which makes you feel low in a bad way), humility is usually used to talk about a lack of ego.

“In a display of the modesty that seems to be marking the beginning of his pontificate, Pope Francis has decided not to move to lavish papal apartments in the Apostolic Palace—at least not for now. Instead, the pope intends to stay in the Casa Santa Marta, the Vatican City guesthouse that hosted him and the other Catholic cardinals during the recent conclave, the meeting that ended in Francis’s election.”

We know that Francis continues to live at Casa Santa Marta, and we have witnessed the simple way he lives, including his choice of cars and clothes, his demeanor, using spaces in the Vatican for the homeless and the poor, and on and on. If we observe Francis, we see living humility.
