In the Gospel this weekend, we hear the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector. The Pharisee is righteous and looks down on others, while the tax collector humbly acknowledges his sinfulness and begs for God’s mercy.
We are called to recognize our need for God’s grace and mercy. This requires humility and a willingness to let go of our pride and self-reliance.
Let us pray for the grace to be humble and open to God’s will, so that we may grow in holiness and become better disciples of Christ and remember that we are called to love our neighbor as ourselves and to be a light to the world. Let us renew our commitment to serve others and to work for a more just and compassionate world.
We must also be open to the workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives, allowing God to guide us and transform us according to His will.
Pray for Peace!
God Bless you,
