October 23: “Oh God, be merciful to me, a sinner.” a statement that is in the Gospel this weekend. A powerful yet humble line that hopefully touches our own lives. Today’s Gospel ,which one do we identify with? The Pharisee or the sinner? Nobody wants to be like the self-righteous Pharisee. He took his place in a prominent place where he could be seen. Instead we tend to relate more to the Tax Collector who stood off at a distance. The point that Jesus makes in todays gospel is that we should be a humble people. Humility in it’s best form is an honest assessment of who we are. The Tax Collector was humble because he recognized the debt of his sinful behavior . He needed to recognize his sinfulness and ask God for forgiveness and more importantly, make an effort to amend his ways. If we truly believe in God’s mercy and love, then we will not be in that time of suffering for long. In this year of mercy, we should have some mercy for ourselves as well as for others.
