The summer days are winding down and the ordinals of Sundays in Ordinary Time increase - this week to the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time.
You'll find the scriptures for August 28th and commentary on them here. And for those shepherding young ones to Mass, you'll find hints to help children prepare to hear the Word here.
Both the first reading (Sirach) and the gospel (Luke) teach us about humility. The second reading (Hebrews) is quite different, showing us the glory of what we approach in faith, in Christ.
Who among us wants to be humble?
How much of our lives are spent insuring that we rise above the level of the humble?
Do any of us desire to be humbled? by God? by others? by circumstance?
What is it? and do we want it?
