A very human trait is to compare ourselves to others. The disciples in the Gospel passage from Mark 9:30-37 did exactly this, arguing amongst themselves as they walked along. Jesus would eventually ask them what they were discussing: who among us is the greatest.
The answer is quite simple. Jesus. As we continue to strive to put Christ at the center of our lives, the very core of our being will, little my little, mirror that of Christ. This imitation of Christ, to serve, will inspire others, and over time we will bring the good out of others, so that they too will imitate our saviour. This is what the saints did, and we are all saints in the making.
May God continue to bless each of you and those that you love, and I look forward to seeing you at Mass this weekend.
