Message of the Week

Whoever Exalts Himself Will Be Humbled, but Whoever Humbles Himself Will Be Exalted

The Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time Ordinary Time

Jesus gives a lesson in humility in this week’s Gospel.

At the heart of Jesus’ criticism of the scribes and Pharisees was their tendency to exalt themselves in the eyes of others.

Many would do things in public to get recognition, but Jesus said instead to be humble servants.

The greatest among them would be those who serve the rest.

That was the example Jesus himself left for us, so we as his followers must also become humble servants.

Humility begins by seeing yourself in the light of truth.

How does God see you?


Therefore, Stay Awake, For You Know Neither the Day Nor the Hour.
