Run Time: 15:44. Gospel: Lk 14:1, 7-14.

That’s the key, you see. That virtue of humility and that contention with the vice of pride. In a way in the spiritual life there is, there’s no undoing that doesn’t have its root in pride – ‘me and mine’, ‘what is due to me’, ‘what do I claim a right to.’ And there is no virtue – no goodness, no holiness, that does not depend upon humility: the recognition or gratitude of the gratuitous gift of God. And most especially of His freely given and unmerited work of salvation. His invitation to the wedding banquet of heaven.
