Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Luke 14:1,7-14

We are not here to impress one another but to love one another. Pope Francis reminds us that the path of the Lord is a road of humility. In other words, imitate Jesus. Notice how he treated everyone with the same respect and love: the blind man at Jericho, the woman at the well, the woman caught in adultery, the poor woman with the two pennies. In the eyes of God, we are all significant and we do not have to prove it. Whether we sit at the head of the table or put on an apron and serve, we are all special in God’s eyes.
