Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Great leaders are not those who make their authority over others felt. Great leaders (and great people) are those who, like Christ, place themselves and their gifts at the service of others. They have no fear of losing their status, because they have no status to lose.
