Pride's remedy

Coming before the Most Blessed Sacrament in Eucharistic Adoration enlightens us to our many faults and heals them.  Speaking specifically of the sin of pride St. Cyril of Alexandria stated:

"If the power of pride is swelling up in you, turn to the Eucharist; and that Bread, Which is your God humbling and disguising Himself, will teach you humility."

St Cyril of Alexandria
Bishop, Doctor of the Church
Preeminent role at Council of Ephesus
This Council defined the inseparable unity
of the divine and human natures of Christ,
and thus the appropriateness of invoking the Blessed Virgin Mary
under the title of "Theotokos" or Mother of God.
FEAST DAY - June 27

"In Cana of Galilee Christ changed water into wine,
and shall we think Him less worthy of credit
when He changes wine into His Blood?” ~ St Cyril of Alexandria

St Cyril of Alexandria, ora pro nobis!
