St Charles Borromeo

Romans 11:1-2, 11-12, 25-29; Psalm 94; Luke 14:1, 7-11.

Accepting who I am

The ‘wedding feast’ story today is a story of humility. We hear a lot about this virtue, but what is it? Thomas Aquinas said humility “is seeing ourselves as God sees us.” Often, we prefer to see ourselves as better than we really are. True? It is a challenge to accept my limitations, the things I am not so good at. And it doesn’t stop me trying to improve myself, reasonably! Charles Borromeo, we’re told, had a speech impediment, but he was a wonderful and much loved preacher. Pray today that you accept your qualities and limitations, and do your best with them.
