Pastor’s Desk 20th September 2015 - 25th Sunday OT
20th-septThis week we hear about the journey that Jesus made from the mountains through Galilee. Jesus tried to use it as an opportunity to instruct the disciples. He told them that ‘the Son of Man would be delivered into the hands of men, put to death and then three days later he will rise again’. But the disciples didn’t really hear or understand what he was saying because they were in fact arguing which one of them was the greatest.

Jesus is quick to tell them and us that we should become the least, the servant of all. Like the little child dependant on its parents, we ourselves owe all we have to God our Father.
We live in a world that often sees any sort of humility as a sign of weakness on our part. It goes against modern day culture. But in reality with humility comes true freedom. Freedom to let God be God in our lives and to allow him to direct our hearts and our every choice.

By living out our Christian vocation in this way we are happier and we can change our world in a positive way for the good of all.

Fr. Gerry.
