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

Jesus reminds the people in the Gospel and us that we are all in need of a sense of humility, concern for others and unselfishness. But it is very difficult to be humble according to this world’s standards and this is where we feel the tension between the attitudes of this world and the beatitudes of Jesus.  The gospel supplies us with a different set of rules than those of the world.
