Today's Gospel reading: A renewed lesson in humility

Post  SursumCorda on Sun Jul 19, 2009 6:37 pm

I've heard today's Gospel reading many times, but today it hit home very hard what an impatient and prideful person I can be. If I were trying to get away and take a break, and a crowd of needy people followed me and beat me to my location, in all honesty my first reaction would be anger.

<< The apostles returned to Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a lonely place, and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a lonely place by themselves. Now many saw them going, and knew them, and they ran there on foot from all the towns, and got there ahead of them. As he went ashore he saw a great throng, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things. >>
