Try to refrain from boasting but rather boast about your brother.
It is better to give away the conceit than to use it in a selfish manner.
In other words, do not put yourself in a place that would require the
receiving of praise and glory from others.
Try to be modest and reserved. Give praise and glory to God.
Give all the credit to what you do or become in this life to our Lord.
It is not you who does wonders but it is from God by whom we receive such wonders.
It is not from us that we do great things, but God who works through us.
~ Emily Spanos
