Humility is the recognition that no matter what our accomplishments, we still stand in need of the Lord. God hears the cry of the poor and of the oppressed, especially those who acknowledge their dependency upon him. Having heard Paul’s cries for help, the Lord crowned him with eternal salvation.

This week we have a Gospel passage from Luke that Jesus addressed “to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else.” It is of course, the story of two men at prayer – one a Pharisee, one a tax collector; and I would suggest in keeping with the coming events of this week that, one is perhaps wearing a mask and the other one on the road to sainthood, living in the truth of who he is before God, a sinner in need of redemption...
