Meekness
Meekness is the virtue that enables one to overcome the tendencies of anger, revenge, hatred and enmity. Many of its manifestations have already been listed under the heading of charity, because the principal incentives to anger come from the words or actions of a fellow human being. Thus meekness presupposes the virtue of charity or love of neighbor, which provides the motives and the means of overlooking insult, injustice and injury, real or imaginary, from others.
The vice of anger, to which meekness is opposed, is responsible for very much of the misery in the world. It is a vice in which an animal passion in man is permitted to dominate his words and actions as if he possessed neither reason nor free will. In the brute animals, anger is directed by instinct to the purposes of self-defense and self-preservation, as exemplified when a brute fights for food, or against an enemy, or in defense of its young. In man, anger is also designed by nature to be a means of self-…More

Meekness: I must quote U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt, who said: "Walk softly, and carry a big stick, and you will go far", He goes on to say that it is: " The exercise of intelligent forethought and of decisive action sufficiently far in advance of any likely crisis" that will yield success.

The cassock prayer

From Psalm 15

Dominus pars hereditatis meae et calicis Mei. Tu es qui hereditatis meae mihi.

The Lord is the part of my inheritance and of my chalice. Thou art he who will restore my inheritance to me.

The cincture represents the virtue of self-mastery, which St. Paul also counts among the fruits of the Spirit (cf. Galatians 5:22).

Prayer: It is based on 1Peter 1:13. "Praecinge me, Domine, cingulo puritatis, et exstingue in lumbis meis humorem libidinis; ut maneat in me virtus continentiae et castitatis"

(Gird me, O Lord, with the cincture of purity, and quench in my heart the fire of concupiscence, that the virtue of continence and chastity may abide in me).

For the collar.

Subjice me Domine dulcis jugo tuo, dulcique jugo matris tuae Mariae.

Subject me O Lord to Thy Sweet yoke, and to the Sweet yoke of thy mother Mary.
