Twenty-Sixth Sunday of Ordinary Time
October 1, 2017
“Your attitude must be of Christ.”
- Ezekiel 18:25-28
- Philippians 2:1-11
- Gospel: Matthew 21:28-32
St. Paul's letter asks us to “do nothing out of selfishness; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves” and have an attitude that is also in Christ Jesus with each other. For me, that means looking out for one another and to be mindful of more than just my own interests. October begins Respect Life Month, and perhaps we can prayerfully consider this from different views.
For Your Reflection
Our Prayer for Unity reminds us to practice respect for all voices around the table and for all voices not heard in the discussion. We should remember and pray for all those who are not respected today due to immigration status or race or gender. As we put on the “attitude of Christ” we can use that example to love and respect one another in every encounter. Regardless of our calling, we are called to love another as God loves all of us.
Praying for a wonderful weekend for you!
