Gospel: Lk 17:7-10
When we read today’s reading, it talks about a master-servant relationship. The Gospel today tells us the role of a servant who works for his master. The master will not invite the servant to eat with him but to serve him first then wait for him before he could eat. It seems like this is unjust but the parable reminds us that we are called to be his humble servant who knows our place and our role.
As followers of Christ, we are called to humbly serve Him with all our God-given talents and capacities. We cannot boast of anything in front of God, for everything we have comes from him. When we live our mission out of love with a humble heart - sharing the Word of God and generously giving ourselves to others, we receive our true recompense from Him.
Mama Mary, our Mother most humble, teach us to be humble of heart, to serve and give love to others.
