TWENTY SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #126
Humility is not the same as groveling. Humility means knowing your strengths and your weaknesses and acknowledging that you may know some things but not everything. There is, after all, just one Messiah, and, under our own power, anyway, we ain't it.

Sirach 3:17–18, 20, 28–29. A lot of Wisdom literature includes this kind of practical advice on how to get along in the world.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (67) 68. This is a hymn in praise of God and the choice of Jerusalem as the place from which God reigns over the earth. The text seems disjointed, as if combining verses from various sources, and the original uses words found nowhere else in the Bible.

In Your Goodness, O God (O'Carroll/Bramma) CBW 177

Suggested Common Psalm
Ps 91, Be with Me, Lord

Hebrews 12:18–19, 22–24a. The author uses images of God's presence to teach believers about the proper approach to God in prayer. They are not approaching the God of thunder and lightning on Mount Sinai ; they are approaching the God of the Jerusalem Temple , but they are approaching this God as Father, for they are coming through “Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant.”

Luke 14:1, 7–14. Can you imagine talking like this to someone who invites you to supper? But, it seems, Jesus never lost an opportunity to teach the kind of practical advice that makes the reign of God a reality here and now.
