Gospel text
Mt 23:1-12
"As for you, do not be called ‘Rabbi.’ You have but one teacher, and you are all brothers. Call no one on earth your father; you have but one Father in heaven. Do not be called ‘Master’; you have but one master, the Christ. The greatest among you must be your servant."
Gospel's Commentary
Today it is hard to hear Jesus disqualify scribes and Pharisees: too much talk, too little accomplished! The first thing a good teacher, a good guide or a good father should do, is to lead by example. - Contemporary man is more pleased listening to those who bear witness over those who teach¡ Let’s be humble servants!
