My Reflection for July 25, Thursday Feast of Saint James, Apostle, Matthew 20:20-28

My Reflection:
Many are attracted to serve in the church not because they want to help advance the teachings of Jesus. Their attraction comes from what the church could give or what they could derive from the church if they would serve.  But we all know that this kind of motive is built upon a person’s self-image and therefore useless.

True service in the vineyard of the Lord is all about humility. Not thinking of what we can derive from the church, but what we can humbly give to God and His church. True service for the church is not about having power and influence it’s based on losing power and influence.

Obviously the mother in our gospel for today and many of us too are still not aware of this. …
