Gospel: Matthew 20:20-28
Greatness means humility.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus encountered the desire of two of His disciples to be His right and left hand men. And with this, Jesus responded telling them His purpose of coming to the world to serve and not to be served.
Jesus being the King of kings does not intend to rule but to lead the people; He does not aim to have authority but to minister; He does not desire to have all of the world but to give His all to the world.
Today’s Gospel calls us to humble ourselves as we serve the ministry of Jesus to the people.
Mother of humility, pray for us.
