St. Bernard,
Pray for us
Matthew 23:1-12


How humble are we? How approachable are we? Do we lord it over others because of our intelligence or because we have a slightly higher position? Are we embroiled in power struggles because we think we are better than the next person? This lack of humility can come through at all levels not only by those at the top. At times we think we are better because we go to Mass every day or make Holy Hours every day. The Pharisees’ big mistake was their pride in how they practiced their religion.
