29th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Gospel: Mark 10:35-45
When James and John brazenly demand of Jesus, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you,”
they reverse the usual dynamics of the disciple/teacher relationship.
By acquiescing with “What do you wish me to do for you?” Jesus accepts the role reversal they placed on him.
By responding in this way, Jesus reveals another reversal:
glory is given not to those who seek to be “first among” others
but to those who choose to serve others by giving their lives for them.
Out of which reversal do we live?
Please pray for our five candidates for Confirmation:
