Vanity

Pope Francis Portrait Painting

An example I often use to illustrate the reality of vanity, is this: look at the peacock; it’s beautiful if you look at it from the front. But if you look at it from behind, you discover the truth… Whoever gives in to such self-absorbed vanity has huge misery hiding inside them.

—-Pope Francis I

Try to make this quote a basis for prayer.
