A single sentence that is supremely significant in our Gospel today, it is right at the end of the Gospel so it could easily escape our ears... “The greatest among you will be the one who serves the rest. Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, but whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.”
In our Gospel today Jesus says to Peter “come.” It is a simple invitation, one that Jesus gives us daily. It is the same one that he offered to the rich young man elsewhere in the Gospel. The young man turned away because he had many possessions.
