08-20-16 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

August 20, 2016
(St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Abbot and Doctor of the Church)
Jesus called His disciples and the people to obedience to those in authority over them.  But He also warned them not to follow their example, because somewhere in their training they forgot to read the Book.  They missed the class that taught that the best leader is the one who teaches by example.  The Jewish leaders of the time were purely in it for the show and for the glory, regardless of who it may have hurt.  Funny, sounds like many of our leaders today!

And then Jesus left them with that nugget of wisdom that summarized it all.  He said, “The greatest among you must be your servant.  Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”  Mt_23:1-12

You see, beloved, it’s not about the show or the glory.  It’s about the wisdom.  It’s through the wisdom of God that you will receive all the glory you could ever need – God’s Glory for eternity!  Because it’s through the Wisdom that God will be leading others to Himself, through you!  And that’s not only humbling,  but it’s exalting as well!

St Bernard of Clairvaux
