What is Pride?
"You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.' So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate." (Gen 3:4-6).
How does pride look in today's world?
"Ignorance of the fact that man has a wounded nature inclined to evil gives rise to serious errors in the areas of education, politics, social actions and morals”. - Pope Benedict XVI
"It was pride that changed angels into devils; and humility that makes men as angels"- St. Augustine.
Pride affects our society and destroys oneself by developing a big ego and thinking they are better than others.
