The Immeasurable Figure of Christ

473 Cast away that despair produced by the realization of your weakness. It’s true: financially you are a zero, and socially another zero, and another in virtues, and another in talent…

But to the left of those zeros is Christ… And what an immeasurable figure it turns out to be!

475 You realize you are weak. And so, indeed, you are. In spite of all that—rather, because of it—God has sought you. He always uses inadequate instruments so that the work may be seen to be his.

From you he asks only docility.

596 Don’t feel hurt when others see your faults. What should really distress you is the offense against God and scandal you may give.

Apart from that, may you be known for what you are and be despised. Don’t be sorry if you are nothing, because then Jesus will have to put everything into you.

—From The Way by Saint Josemaria Escriva
