Prayer goes up like a rocket (30th Sunday OT)

Benjamin Homilies

The book of Sirach tells us that the prayer of the lowly one pierces the clouds (Sir 35:16:18). Our prayers will go up to Heaven like a rocket, if we begin by recognizing our own lowliness. At the same time, we also need to recognize our giftedness, the truth of how much God has blessed us.
