Monday of the Thirty First Week in Ordinary Time ‘a’

Today Jesus reminds us that we Christians need to take care of the poor people, of those who are “crippled, the lame, the blind.” And most of us do that by making extra monetary offerings for charities, or when we participate in a winter clothes collection, or in a food pantry, or if you simply give some money to a homeless person on the street. But have you ever thought about what Jesus is telling us in reverse? Let’s say that you are the one that needs help from another person -- some good advice, some spiritual help, or help with an addiction, or maybe some financial help. Are you able to ask for it, and can you accept it? See, most times we think that we are the people who must help others, but there are times when we need to ask for that help. Are you humble enough to ask for it and admit that you are struggling? That is much more difficult.
