Tuesday of the 32nd Week in Ordinary Time, based on Lk 17:7-10

(This preaching appeared originally on theWord on 10 Nov 2009)


Jesus said to the apostles:

“Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, ‘Come here at once and take your place at the table’? Would you not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink’? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, ‘We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!’”
