The theme of this Sunday’s Scripture readings is on humility. The First
Reading from the Book of Sirach states: “My child, conduct your affairs with humility, and you will be loved more than a giver of gifts. Humble yourself the more, the greater you are, and you will find favor with God” (1 Sir 3:17-18). Our Lord in today’s Gospel states: “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14:11). Humility is a very important virtue to pray for. Here’s what
the Saints said about humility: To be taken with love for a soul, God does not look on its
greatness, but the greatness of its humility. --St John of the Cross, OCD
