Sir. 3: 17-20, 28-29 Humble yourself and you will find favor with the Lord.
Be gentle in carrying out your work. The greater you are, the more humble you should be.
Ps. 68 "In your goodness, O God, you have prepared a home for the poor."
Heb. 12: 18-19, 22-24 You have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God.
Mt. 11: 29 "Take my yoke upon you; learn from me, for I am gentle of heart."
GOSPEL: Lk. 14: 1, 7-14
Those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
Jesus goes for a meal at the home of one of the leading Pharisees. Seeing how the guests picked the places of honor, Jesus tells them a parable about a wedding feast and humility.
FOCUS: "Take my yoke upon you; learn from me, for I am gentle of heart." By responding to the Lord's invitation we enter into salvation. We must live the life of humility and refrain from exalting ourselves over the dispossessed
REFLECTION: The yoke of Christ is sweet and his burden light unto refreshment for those who submit to it; but all things alien to the teachings of the Gospel are heavy and burdensome.
St. Basil
"Leave off that excessive desire of knowing; therein is found much distraction. There are many things the knowledge of which is of little or no profit to the soul."Thomas á Kempis
"Have you still preserved your state of spiritual warmth? It should be preserved. Its basis is humility. As soon as humility decreases, coolness enters. For when the soul begins to regard itself as something important, the Lord at once withdraws; and, left by itself, the soul grows cold. It is not just with the tongue that we should keep saying 'I am nothing', but we should feel our nothingness in the heart. Then the Lord will always be there, He who creates and has created everything out of nothing. The Lord will give warmth, but we must do our part as well.
What then, can we contribute to this work? Humility and attention, and a suffering submission to God in the depths of the heart, which should continue unceasingly whatever we may be doing or saying, whether we are sitting down or moving about, whether at home or in church. May the Lord grant you wisdom. Read holy writings, reflect upon them, and absorb all that is useful, applying it to your life and to your soul." Theophane the Recluse
APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Rather than exulting in our righteousness we are called to be humble, caring for the afflicted and less fortunate. Invite the assembly to communion by saying that in the Eucharist we have a covenant in which we see Jesus in all humankind.
Sample General Intercessions-
Introduction: My brothers and sisters, may all who follow Christ reject what is contrary to the gospel. Let us pray to God, to bring the seeds of the gospel to bloom on earth.
· For all those who gather in the Holy Spirit of God, that he will help them to be faithful to their baptismal call,
· For peace among nations, that God may rid the world of violence, and let us serve him in freedom,
· For the aged who suffer from loneliness and infirmity, that we will sustain them by our lives,
· For all of us gathered here, that God will teach us to use wisely the good things he has given us, that they will lead us closer to him and to eternal blessing.
Preface: 6 for Sundays in Ordinary Time
Prayers over the People: 2 or 16
Solemn Blessing: 4 or 5 for Sundays in Ordinary Time
Faith Formation
· In what ways do I put myself first? Is that disgusting or what?
· What habits have you grown up with that run contrary to the way of humility?
Humility is praised by Jesus many times in the gospels. Are you willing to be humble, or does the whole idea offend your pride? If your pride is keeping you from following Jesus maybe you ought to just dump it. God loves us all.
· What elements of your will have you struggled with in your spiritual journey?
Meditate on the words of St. Bernard: "In those respects in which the soul is unlike God, it is also unlike itself."

Look up and discuss the words: humble and humility. Derived from the word "humus" meaning soil or earth, relate this meaning to our being ourselves, content with who we are, a child of God.
