Series: Greatest of All Time

We all desire to be the greatest. The G.O.A.T.–greatest of all time. We are racing after collecting experiences and having an incredible life. But what really matters is not so much a person’s story as much as their character. Jesus will ultimately reveal (as the greatest of all time) what it really is to be the greatest.

09/16/18 Greatest of All Time: To Be Great, Give

Could you be great even if no one knew?

Homily from the Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

The desire to be seen and to be known is written deep in the human heart. But is a person great simply because a large number of people acknowledge them? Jesus reveals that true greatness is when a person gives themselves away to something or someone greater; it is to lay down one’s life for Him and for the Gospel. It does not consist in self-protection or self-expression, but in self-donation.
