For 13 September 2019, Friday of week 23 in Ordinary Time, based on Luke 6:39-42
Jesus told his disciples a parable: â€œCan a blind person guide a blind person? Will not both fall into a pit? A disciple is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully qualified will be like the teacher. Why do you see the speck in your neighborâ€™s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, â€˜Friend, let me take out the speck in your eye,â€™ when you yourself do not see the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighborâ€™s eye.
