Re: Oh, No, Not That Again! Revisiting Self-Esteem

Thank you very much for your reflections and presenting this book on that very important subject! From the very beginning of my spiritual way as a Catholic - more than five years ago - I have looked, practically and theoretically, for the meaning of the Christian claim for self-abandonment and the virtue of humility. I found the definition of Josef Pieper (citing St. Thomas Aquinas in his book about the virtue of temperantia) very helpful: "Demut gründet darin, dass der Mensch sich so einschätzt, wie es der Wahrheit entspricht." ("Humility is grounded in the right existimation of oneself.") And I agree that only the forgiving love of and the relation to God can help us in "peace-ful" accepting oneself.

Greetings from Vienna, Astrid
