Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time – September 24, 2017
Gospel Reading: Matthew 20:1-16a
“Thus, the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
Humility is a virtue that we must embrace in our Catholic school communities. It is multi-faceted: we must take every chance to embrace it ourselves, as well as lead our students to model Christ’s example of humility and meekness. To be humble is to better open ourselves to the Holy Spirit so that we can better encourage our students toward holiness. One of the best methods of practicing humility is to recall that the Church already has a Messiah… and we are not him!
Despite educators’ public prominence, how can we be sure to embrace humility in our lives?
