To Be Faithful Servants Walking God's Talk
This Weeks Readings: Sirach 3.17-20, 28-29; Psalm 68; Hebrews 12.18-19. 22-24a; Luke 14.1, 7-14.
Today Sirach counsels, "Conduct your affairs with humility... Humble yourself the more, the geater you are, and you will find favour with God." Christ promises us that "the one who humbles himself will be exalted." Why is humility an integral part of Christian righteousness? Becuae it is humility that keeps us mindful of our inestimable privilege: we "have approchaed Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant." Only humility disposes us to want what the Lord offers and to be ever receptive to his mercy in our midst. Humility insures that our Gospel priorities are kept intact. "Humility recognizes God as he is... Humility and trust are what make a person truly human" (Pope Benedict XVI).
Next Week's Readings: Wisdom 9.13-18; Psalm 90; Philemon 9-10, 12-17; Luke 14.25-33.
