Fr Norris reflection

The more you forget yourself and do it with great love for Jesus the more an Alter Christus you will become.

You have far to high opinion of yourself. You seem, almost without being aware of it, to hold yourself apart and aloof from your companions, to think yourself the standard of the college to which all must conform. You consider and are delighted to bluff yourself that all have a very high opinion of your sanctity and certainly often times you are disturbed even when seeing someone else exercising holy piety. You are thinking of your miserable self far too much and it is this which keeps you from Jesus. Oh Mary humble me please. I resolve to consider myself the least of all and the servant of all. I resolve especially in recreation to make a special point of endeavouring
to please others.
