For 9 September 2022, The Memorial of Saint Peter Claver , based on Luke 6:39-42
Jesus also told his disciples a parable: ‘Can 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 neighbour’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbour, “Friend, let me take out the speck in your eye”, 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 neighbour’s eye.

Thanks, Sr. Barbara, for breaking open this gospel message of Jesus for everyone. I appreciate the stories you offered and your own vulnerability in sharing. It made me pause to reflect on my own judgments of others and miss the plank in my own eyes. God bless your preaching!

Hi Barbara and thank you!
Yes, so easy to judge another, and miss our own vulnerable moments of participation in this way.
