Saint Polycarp

Isaiah 1:10, 16-20, Ps.50, Matthew 23:1-12


When Richie McCaw retired and Jonah Lomu died, the adjective most used to describe them was “humble.” The importance of humility, and the damning effects of its lack, feature prominently in Our Lord’s teaching ministry. Humility puts everything in perspective. It is to understand who we really are – in relation to God and in relation to each other. We understand that we are utterly dependent on God for everything, and that, as his children, we are all equal in his sight.

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less.”
(CS Lewis)
