Trinity XVII – Friend, go up higher
Fr. Oldfield preaches on the dangers of pride and the graces of humility. Jesus uses a parable to describe how pride assumes to take something that does not rightfully belong to it, while humility gratefully receives all graces to, as the parable says “go up higher”.
