FAITH BOOK

25th SUNDAY (B) SEPTEMBER 23, 2018

Numbers 11: 25-29; Psalm 19; James 5: 1-6; Mark 9: 38-43, 47-48

By: Jude Siciliano, OP

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

From today’s Gospel reading:

Taking a child, he placed it in their midst,

and putting his arm around it, he said to them,

"Whoever receives one child such as this in my name,

receives me."

Reflection:

As we celebrate the "true presence" of Jesus in today’s Eucharist, we might consider where in the world we also discover his true presence. We could begin looking in the direction he points today, to the least. "Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me."

So we ask ourselves:

  • Can I "receive" and accept the child within myself – the vulnerable and scared little one whom God has already accepted?
  • What can I do or say to protect the children in my church, community or world?
