32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B

True greatness comes not from the power to dominate; to coerce, but rather from the ability to persuade.

In today's Gospel Jesus clarifies that the bread that he will give is his flesh, for the life of the world.
Mass with Seminarians and Parents 2015
So it is important to remember that it's not about us and if we take opposition personally, it may be because we feel our authority to be threatened, which was what Jesus' adversaries were feeling.
