Running to be "first in serving" the last ...
Sunday August 28 XXII of the O.T.

Dear brothers and sisters, among the laws, totally counterintuitive for us, that rule the new world that Jesus came to inaugurate on earth, the one recommended to us by the Divine Master in the passage from the Gospel of Luke that we’re going to listen to on Sunday, August 28, leaves us literally at a loss for words: In fact, He says: “For every one who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Thus, if in the effort to put our ego aside in order to take care of the poor, the marginalized and rejected by society, we experience the thrill of feeling lifted, as on eagle's wings, on the unknown and unexplored peaks of the spirit, we must not to marvel… This is how it works in the amazing God's world: to go up we have to go down!
