Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Malachi 1:14b-2:2b, 8-10; Matthew 23:1-12
We have but one Master: they who created us. And she is the creator of all, not just one particular tribe. Stop wasting time fighting over whose definition of the Undefinable One is less ridiculous. You are all brothers and sisters. Stop placing your clerics on a pedestal. They are not holier than you. Authority exists to share God's joy, not to earn a living. No institution has the power to declare someone an expert on our Creator's love. Such an honor can only earned, through service to the family.
