Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time – November 5, 2017
Gospel Reading: Matthew 23:1-12
“The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
We live in a time of much self-promotion for its own sake, not to mention self-aggrandizement. Both striving to live humbly ourselves and teaching our students humility themselves may seem like daunting tasks, and this is not to say that they are not; however, what we need to keep in mind is that Jesus does not call us to anything of which we are incapable.
Have you taken opportunities to actually explain to your students why humility is virtuous?
