Daily Reflection

Third Saturday of Lent

Finding our own humility

From today’s Scripture:Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.” —Mk 18:14

The Gospel story about the pharisee and the tax collector challenges the feeling of self-righteousness and seeing others as sinners. As Christians, we are encouraged to correct each other through a loving dialogue and with dignity.

Deeds are better than words. We should compete in doing good to each other, not in judging. Our God has placed some form of weakness in each person, for our own humility.

Let us pray: Lord, help me to be merciful today. Help me to see my own weakness when I see the shortcomings of others; help me to “walk a mile in their shoes,” and not cast judgment. Strengthen me today to act in your ways of love.
