Do you take full responsibility when you have made a mistake ? I do too. When we are wrong, we should admit it. This shows humility, and God gives grace to the humble.
However, I was not instructed by Fr. Joseph, on how to greet a Bishop. I didn’t know that when I met our Bishop that I was supposed to call him “Your Excellency”. Using correct church etiquette, I recently learned, I should have knelt, and kissed his ring. At the very least, I should have bowed to him.
Instead, I asked him rather loudly, why two priests disappeared, at the same time, without explanation, from our area.
I shall continue to work to improve my manners.
However, I do not remember reading in the Bible that Jesus asked to be called ” Your Excellency” , do you ?
Jesus came to serve, and not to be served. Let us ask God for the grace to follow our Lord’s example.
