The greatest among you must be your servant

“The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” (MT 23: 11-12)

This is the purpose for which we were created: Our Lord came to serve, and we need to follow His example. True love always look for the gift of self, not for demanding; is more concerned in giving than receiving, like bl. Paul VI reminded us: “Whoever really loves his partner loves not only for what he receives, but loves that partner for the partner’s own sake, content to be able to enrich the other with the gift of himself.”

“You have but one Father in heaven; you have but one master, the Christ.” (Gospel Acclamation)
