Homily / At the heart of being a Pharisee is a spirit of being prideful. Every time we choose to do things our own way, sinning against God, we choose the sin of pride.
Here are some spiritual tips as we get ready to celebrate time with family.
- Remember that Jesus' promises that he is here with us. Ask for patience, tolerance, and understanding.
- We need to keep our expectations reasonable. If they are high, our serenity will be low.
- Family is an opportunity for us to die to ourselves. F-forget A-about M-me I L-love Y-you. Instead of asking, ‘what can I get,’ ask, ‘what can I give.’
