(Sirach 3: 17-18, 20, 28-29     Hebrew 12: 18- 19, 22-24     Luke 14: 1, 7-14)

God’s glory shines through each one of us. Therefore we ought to respect and value each person’s uniqueness, especially in the area of the proclamation of the Good News of Salvation. No one person can effectively proclaim the Good News of Salvation with all its multi-facet realities; it takes the totality of all our efforts and uniqueness to achieve this. It must be borne in mind that the weakness of one person calls for the strength of another person. We need each other in this endeavor of making the core message of Christ’s merciful love known and accepted by all throughout the world and in every generation.

Selfishness and arrogance that breed acrimony, jealousy, and hatred must be eschewed and eliminated from within and among us. We lose a lot by allowing these to dominate our everyday way of life. We actually gain nothing but unnecessary and unhealthy pain, depression and anguish by despising the uniqueness of the other person. By ignoring and despising the special qualities in other persons is tantamount to despising and denying the very presence of God who is at work in each of us. If we were to be of the same quality and caliber, what would have been the state of our world today? All things would have been stale, insipid, and unprofitable. Each person in the society has a special place in the universe; each person adds up to the building up of the Holy Body of Christ, the Church. Fixing all our attention on the essence and purpose of Jesus Christ will immensely help us deal with the problem of our useless bloated pride and self-centeredness that most times lead us to despise others whom we judge to be sub-standard based on our biased irrelevant judgement and estimation.
