Pride being the chief cause of alienation, humility is the antidote to pride & the ground of true being. The challenge chiefly is that when we give ourselves over to the journey of faith, perhaps for the first time in our lives, and making progress danger lies near.

Progress begets satisfaction that is proud of our progress.  It is true that we are on our way, it is further true that this progress is good, however, it is not true that this movement toward God is our doing. For when begin to think that we are good as if virtue is on account of our striving pride has taken us over.
