September 1, 2019: Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Preaching for the Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Marie Anne Mayeski offers a reflection on humility:
"If we are to be humble after the pattern of Jesus, then, like Him, we must lay aside the garments that social status and worldly privilege dress us in and wash the feet of those who are like us, equal to us, made in the image and likeness of God. We must, in short, wash each other's feet."
Marie Anne Mayeski received a Ph.D. in Theology from Fordham University and taught for 30 plus years in the Department of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University. Her areas of specialization were New Testament theology, early Christian history and the place and accomplishments of women in Christian history.
