Prayer to Our Lady of Humility

O God, who looks down upon the lowly and knows the heights from afar: grant that your children may with pure heart imitate the humility of the Blessed Virgin Mary; she who was pleasing to you in her virginity and in humility conceived our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son: Who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.

Madonna of humility refers to paintings, sculptures or icons of the Virgin Mary which shows her sitting on the ground, or upon a low cushion. In some works, the Child Jesus is in her lap. This style painting is intended to honor her humility.
The earliest known painting of this type dates to 1346 and is at the Museo Nazionale in Palermo, Italy. It represents Mary seated on a small cushion just above the ground holding the Child Jesus. The painting has the inscription, Nostra Domina de Humiltate (Our Lady of Humility). The low cushion symbolizes her humility.
In 1361, an altar was dedicated to the Madonna of Humility in the church of Santa Maria Novella in Florence. The style painting spread quickly throughout Italy and by 1375 new paintings began to appear in Spain, France and Germany. 

Although we always like offering information on Marian titles and art, these are not the reasons we chose to create this rosary.  
The Catholic dictionary defines humility as “The moral virtue that keeps a person from reaching beyond himself. It is the virtue that restrains the unruly desire for personal greatness…….recognizing one's total dependence on God…..”
In her Magnificat, Mary said, “My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior because He hath regarded the humility of His handmaid…….”
In The Glories of Mary, Saint Alphonsus Liguori wrote, “On another occasion our Lord showed Saint Bridget two ladies. The one was all pomp and vanity. "She," He said, "is Pride; but the other one whom you see with her head bent down, courteous towards all, having God alone in her mind, and considering herself as no one, is Humility: her name is Mary." In this revelation God was pleased to make known to us that the humility of His blessed Mother is so great that she is humility itself.

This rosary honors Mary as Our Lady of Humility and is intended to aid us in our prayer to follow her by becoming more humble.

Representing the virtue of humility, we have chosen a simple color for this limited edition rosary. Gentle rose Czech glass are the Aves. Symbolizing Our Lady, pink flowers sit under clear glass in the lampwork Paters. Italian imported Marian center and crucifix complete this tender rosary which measures 20”.

“To be taken with love for a soul, God does not look on its greatness, but the greatness of its humility.”  
~Saint John of the Cross, OCD~

“The truly humble reject all praise for themselves, and refer it all to God.”
 ~Saint Alphonsus Liguori~

“The soul's true greatness is in loving God and in humbling oneself in His presence, completely forgetting oneself and believing oneself to be nothing; because the Lord is great, but He is well-pleased only with the humble; He always opposes the proud.”
~Saint Faustina~ Divine Mercy in my Soul~
