Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

Gospel: Luke 14:1,7-11
“...the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Again humility is found to be a major factor in the presence of the Lord. When we recognize our limitations, our mistakes, our inabilities, Jesus props us up and eases our uncertainties. We regain our confidence and there’s courage because we know Jesus is with us.
When we allow Him to take over our lives, there’s no need pride nor prestige, nor competition. These are not important anymore. We start to reset our priorities, on what’s important or what is not. We focus on our journey to Heaven, by being docile to God’s plan..
