    25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

    A common remark by children gathering together for a bus ride or car ride or a seat on a Carnival ride, I want the front seat.

    Sometimes we as adults carry this same mentality. I want my idea to be selected.  I want it my way.
     
    If you find that you still have this child like quality within you, you will not like the context of today’s scripture or today’s invite to living out our Christian values.
     
    “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”
     
    The call to Christianity is a call to service. It is a call to be humble. It is a call to listen, to compromise, to offer a helping hand.
     
    The picture below depicts the train ride at Polish Fest.  We had a problem once.  The kids would not get off the train at the end of the ride to let a new group on. So we created a rule, all must exit and go to the back of the line to re-enter.  (There is still on occasion a kid that doesn’t wish to get off.)  Do you know any adults like that?
     
    The call of Christianity is to let others board the train of life ahead of you!
     
    Father Ron
