Approaching Mount Zion in Humility

The pastor preached on humility tonight:

I appreciate his concise, pointed homilies. One parishioner remarked to me tonight that he likes getting challenged–and Fr Seda always does that for him.

That said, I was drawn to the great image in the second reading from Hebrews:

No, you have approached Mount Zion
and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem,
and countless angels in festal gathering,
and the assembly of the firstborn enrolled in heaven,
and God the judge of all,
and the spirits of the just made perfect,
and Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant,
and the sprinkled blood that speaks more eloquently than that of Abel. (Hebrews 12:22-24a)

What a litany. How can you preach humility when being mentioned in company like that?
