Homily for September 1

In his homily, Fr. Paul talked about the radical humility and hospitality Jesus calls us to. Jesus wants us to be aware that we shouldn’t just show hospitality to those who will eventually repay us for it. Instead, we need to be humble enough to show hospitality to those who can’t repay us. The most vulnerable and the most in need. As you go about your week, think about someone in your life who could use some hospitality. Is there someone who feels lonely that would appreciate a visit? If you participate in a mission meal, do you ever stop to talk to one of the people you serve? What can you do to help them, even if it means being humble and not expecting anything in return?
