Servant-leaders. Family Faith Focus March 15. ‘FAMILIES WALK THE TALK’

It is recognised that in every liberation struggle there are heroes. People look up to them and remember their good deeds even if they have become tyrants and abuse their own people.   Is this the way of a true leader, one who serves rather than controls with force and manipulation? The same servant-leader qualities taught by Jesus apply at all levels including family life.

Jesus said, “Whoever would be great among you must be your servant.  As the Son of man came not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.   Matt 20:17-28.

Pope Francis: prudence, good judgment and common sense are dependent not on purely growth factors but rather on a whole series of things that come together deep within each person.  AL 262
