THE FIRST OR THE LAST?
       In my formation to become a deacon we had, as guides for us, what we called the core team.  This core team consisted of five permanent deacons and their wives.  Some of them deacons for many years and some of them for only 5 years which was the last class ordained before ours.  But there was one deacon couple who Mela and I really connected with. their names were Deacon Tommy and his wife Jackie Contrades from Kauai.  Fr. EJ knows them well and I’ve heard him refer to Deacon Tommy as “Uncle Tommy,” which was just fine with him because that was the kind of guy he was.  Late last year Deacon Tommy found out that he had pancreatic cancer and after a valiant attempt at trying to beat his condition he gracefully and blessedly received his reward for a life well lived as a worker in God’s vineyard.  He went to heaven.  His motto during the time he battled his cancer was, “Be not afraid,” and he wasn’t.  About a few weeks prior to his passing, Mela and I along with another couple from our class, Deacon Keith Cabiles and his wife Hazel, went to go and visit Deacon Tommy and Jackie in Kauai.  One of the last things I asked him before we left was if he had any advice for us not only as deacons but just for life in general.  He thought for a while and looked at the 4 of us and said, “Humility, be humble, that’s the best advice I can give you.”  During our formation process he was always the one who would be the example of humility.  He never acted as if he was any better than anyone else and even for a guy who was as big and tall as he was he never made you feel like you were smaller than he was.  He was an inspiration for all of us and he andhis wife changed our lives.  A deacon is the symbol of Christ the servant and he was that symbol for us.
      Now if you’re wondering why I’m relaying this story to you it’s because todays Gospel is all about humility.  Deacon Tommy was the first thing I thought of after reading it.  The first will be last and the last will be first.  Think about the people in the Gospel, would your first thought be the same as the worker who worked all day and thought he should get more?  Most people would tend to think the same, myself included in my earlier life because the world says that’s how it should be.   The author of “The Imitation of Christ,” Thomas A. Kempis wrote: "Do not believe yourself better than others, for fear that God, who knows the inner man, might see you as the worst of all.  Have no vanity in your good works, for the judgements of God are quite different from those of men, and he often condemns what they approve.  If you recognize in yourself a few good qualities, believe that others have better ones; and by this means you will preserve your humility.  You will lose nothing by placing yourself below others; you will lose all if you prefer yourself to even one other."  Isn’t that enough to make you think before acting as if you were above someone else?  Places of honor and status we take in this life is just that, honor and status for “THIS” life.  Our thoughts and actions should be more concerned with what happens to us “AFTER” this life.
       So let’s approach the Eucharistic table with a spirit of humility and look to the Lord who comes to serve us and offer ourselves to him to do all things in his will.
