08-26-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

August 26, 2017
Just to finish the story that began yesterday.  Ruth did follow Naomi into her land and served all the needs of her Jewish mother-in-law.  There she also served in the fields of a powerful relative of Naomi’s deceased husband, who was named Boaz.   Boaz took Ruth.  When they came together as man and wife, the LORD enabled her to conceive and she bore a son. . . . They called him Obed.  He was the father of Jesse, the father of David.  Ru_2:1-3,8-11;4:13-17

All in a long line of descendants leading to our Lord and Savior, Jesus!  (see Mt_1: 5-16)

All just goes to show, exactly what Jesus taught:

“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

Thanks be to God for giving us the example of Ruth in faithfulness, dedication, humility and exaltation!
