Second paragraph
from the anonymus retreat handout I described below.
"Envy, the product of insecurity brought on by pride, is to be rejected because it bears grudges against others, produces intolerance, bigotry, prejudice, using the lie and the smear to destroy the good work and the good name of others, creating jealousy with its demands for rights, advantages, status. In contrast, love is inculcated in the soul as the means of reducing envy and of growing in self-sacrifice, self-giving dedication to the good, the benefit, the welfare of others. "
