Gospel: Matthew 23:1–12
“All who exalt themselves will be humbled, and all who humble themselves will be exalted.” (cf. Matthew 23:12)
In today's Gospel, Jesus moralized the crowds and his disciples into humility by inspiring them into service for others.
There is nothing wrong with being proud of our lives and works but when one’s pride starts to degrade others, it is the time when one is doing too much. A righteous man might be dignified by many because of his great deeds and yet hehumbly acknowledges the works of the One behind him – God.
Let us ask Mother Mary to help us find ourselves humble andgrateful to the works of God in our lives.
