“Amen, I say to you, among those born of women there has been none greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the Kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” (MT 11: 11)
Who is greater? Who is the first? The most important? Even the Apostles had a problem with this “competition.” Our Lord showed that the greatest comes with “the Kingdom of heaven,” and it comes from Him and is based on how much we love. Who is greater: husband or wife? For him—she is, for her—he is, because they love, and true love is in giving, not demanding.
“Let the clouds rain down the Just One, and the earth bring forth a Savior.” (Gospel Acclamation)
