Fourteenth Saturday of Ordinary Time

Be glad you lowly ones; may your hearts be glad! You descendants of Abraham, his servants, sons of Jacob, his chosen ones! He, the LORD, is our God; throughout the earth his judgments prevail.

The world tells us being lowly is to be a failure. It tells us being meek and humble is to be forgotten. It tells us choosing service to God over service to self is enslavement. However, nothing can lead us to triumph faster than to yield our wills to God. Nothing can lead to spiritual success more rewarding than to make ourselves into good and faithful servants to God. Nothing can make us happier than to become the trusting children of God.

Are we lowly, meek, and humble? How can we become faithful servants to God? What can we do to depend more perfectly on our Heavenly Father?

O Lord, help us to be lowly and glad.
