Click here for news releases.



Welcome to St. Mark - St. James Parish







25th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Gospel: Mark 9:30-37 

How the disciples continue to misunderstand the deepest truth about what the “Son of Man” is to undergo! 

While Jesus is speaking of his impending suffering, death, and rising, the disciples
are quibbling over “who [is] the greatest” among them.
They are brought to silence twice by Jesus because
they still cannot accept the true meaning of who Jesus is and his mission. 

By embracing a child, Jesus reveals, again and concretely, who he is: the One least among us who has come to serve.
