22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
1st Reading: Sirach 3:17-18,20,28-29
2nd Reading: Hebrews 12:18-19,22-24a
Gospel: Luke 14:1,7-14
Have you ever been in a group of people-maybe on a tour, at a social gathering, or at church-and discovered that you have just been talking with a well-known author, corporate CEO, great scholar, or politician? Your first thought is the hope that you didn’t say anything to embarrass yourself; but your second thought is how much they seemed like such “regular” folks. What is it that makes people seem so “regular”? Today’s readings give us a clue when they stress the importance of humility. It is so hard for us not to tell the first person who will listen how busy we are, how hard we work, how much money we donate, and how important our job titles are. We think these accolades make a difference to people, and if we don’t tell them, how will they ever know? But if our actions demonstrate our values, people will recognize our worth on their own. The words of Jesus show us how much better it is to let someone else recognize our worth than to be embarrassed because someone did not.

What is the Holy Door?
The Holy Door or Porta Santa has been used since the fifteenth century as a ritual expression of conversion. But the door finds meaning only when the believer associates the door with Christ. Jesus is the Door.

Mother Teresa was widely admired by many for her charitable works. She founded the Missionaries of Charity, which in 2012 consisted of over 4,500 sisters and was active in 133 countries. They run hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children's and family counselling programmes; orphanages; and schools.
