"Humility" and "being humble" are virtues that we are encouraged to cultivate. "Being humiliated" is something that everybody wants to avoid.

Funny how "humble" and "being humiliated" are two different forms of the exact same word.

(With the Beatitudes for Sunday's gospel, it got me to thinking about what Pr Eckardt wrote last year about Moses' being the most humble man on earth.)

  1. You know how every once in a while something in a sermon just jumps out at you? A few weeks ago we had a sermon about how we don't have to humble ourselves. The Law does the work. What a relief!!
