Wednesday of the Thirtieth Week of Ordinary Time

Today’s readings

What does it take for us to be known by God?  After all, God forbid we’d be among those to whom he says: “I do not know where you are from.”  I think the answer comes in that last verse of the reading: “For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.”  Which goes very much counter to our culture which encourages us to put “me first” – or even, “me only.”  If we wish to enter the kingdom, we have to identify ourselves with those who are marginalized, who are last in the eyes of the world.  For those are the ones who are first in the eyes of God.
