FAITH BOOK

29th SUNDAY (B) October 21, 2018

Isaiah 53: 10-11; Psalm 33; Hebrews 4: 14-16; Mark 10: 35-45

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 Hebrews reading:

 

For we do not have a high priest

Who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,

But one who has similarly been tested in every way,

Yet without sin.

 

Reflection:

 

Hebrews reminds us that the One who has shared our human lot of suffering and temptation is now enthroned in the heavenly realm. But his position "on high" does not make him unapproachable and above our struggles. Thus, when we approach Christ in prayer we can expect mercy and a sympathetic hearing from his "throne of grace."

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Do we expect mercy from Christ each time we ask for it?

  • Then, how does that mercy show itself in how we treat others?
