Your Sunday Catholic Homily Minute - Sept 1st

From the Desk of Father Mark, Your Sunday Catholic Homily Minute

My Dear People,

Praying For Humility

We all know someone, who loves to be the center of attention all the time. Whether real or imagined, they are the ones who suffer more than anyone else, have terrible illnesses all the time, can't wait to tell you about what is going on in their lives. Simply put, they are exhausting. If the spotlight moves onto someone else for a moment, they struggle to get back in the "limelight". You can never give them enough of your time.

Jesus addresses these folks in the Gospel today. He says that those who always need to be first, and the center of everyone's attention, need to pray for "humility". The grace of humility comes when we are at peace with ourselves, and truly know how much God loves us for who we are...not what we want others to believe about us. When Jesus is real for us, we do not need anyone else only HIM. Jesus goes on to tell us, that remaining humble and unassuming may not draw God's attention. In the end, Jesus says, all of the quiet good works, all the little sufferings offered up silently, will be repaid in the Resurrection of the "righteous". Be silent. Be still. Be in God's HOLY presence.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark,Your Catholic Sunday Homily Minute

May we learn to give generously, expecting nothing in return.
