Daily homily thoughts, 5/29

Jesus tells us today that the first will be last and the last will be first. Eve Ensler said, “Stop fixing your bodies and start fixing the world!” So many of us spend so much time trying to be the first in this or that–whether it’s beauty, expertise in this or that thing, intellect, church ministry, etc….that we forget to be about the work that we’re meant to be doing that St Peter talks about in our first reading: “The salvation of souls.”
