This Week’s Gospel Message

Wednesday, October 13th, 2021

This week’s Gospel message for Sunday, October 17th is from Mark 10:35-45.

“James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus and said to him, ‘Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.’ He replied, ‘What do you wish me to do for you?’ They answered him, ‘Grant that in your glory we may sit one of your right and the other at your left.’ Jesus said to them, ‘You do not know what you are asking…to sit at my right or at my left is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared…You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones make their authority over them felt. But is shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.’”

“To be a disciple means being a servant of all, serving our neighbor to the extent that we can. This is our mission. We can do this through works of charity, both far-reaching and close to home. We can do this by continually looking for what we can do for others. Perhaps our common refrain as a disciple should be, ‘What can I do?’ This attitude of service makes us true disciples.” SOURCE: Pastoral Patterns, Autumn 2021
