WORD of the DAY
But they remained silent. They had been discussing among themselves on the way who was the greatest. Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.” (Mark 9: 34-35)
How shall I live this Word?
In a world that is still sick with that ugly leprosy which is the thirst for power, Jesus indicates salvation and true freedom on opposite roads where those who decide to walk in authenticity of the spiritual life, follow the road of humility.
Lord, grant that I may be free from the tyranny of power and of riches. Free and humble because I am able to love in truth those around me and serve them with love.
The voice of St. Augustine, Church Father
Pride transformed the angels into devils. It is humility that makes human beings equal to the angels.
