A More Perfect Humility

10th Sunday After Pentecost 2022
This Mass is a Mass for the proud.  Every aspect of this liturgy has some reference to the superior moral virtue of humility.  The Gospel exemplifies humility in the publican, but as we advance in the practice of this virtue our understanding of it must develop as well.  Not only must we acknowledge our nothingness and need, but we must appreciate God’s gifts and benefits to us all the more.  This is how we prevent our humility from remaining focused on self, and this is why the Epistle of this Mass focuses on God’s many gifts.
