 “Reflection”
The passage from Isaiah we hear today—of God’s servant suffering for the sins of others—we also heard on Good Friday and will hear again next Good Friday. Why do we hear it now nearly halfway in between the two? Perhaps it is because we can use the reminder of what Jesus has done for us. We can also be reminded of Jesus’ call to serve others. As we celebrate Mass today, let us renew our commitment to bring God’s word into action as we serve those who have the greatest need.

 “NONE OF THAT AMONG US


While they’re going up to Jerusalem, Jesus often talks about the painful destiny awaiting him in the capital. His disciples don’t understand him but start arguing about the top seats. James and John, among the first disciples, come up to ask him directly about one day sitting «one at your right hand and the other at your left». It is a discouraging question. Jesus says: «You do not know what you are asking». No one in the group seems to understand that closely following him, working with him on his project, will be a path not of power and greatness, but of sacrifice and cross. Meanwhile, when the other ten find out about James’ and John’s insolence, they get mad. The group is more agitated than ever, divided by Ambition. Jesus gets them all together to make his thinking clear.

Above all he lays out what happens among the peoples in the Roman Empire. Everyone knows the abuses of Antipas and the Herodian families in Galilee. Jesus sums it up this way: those recognized as leaders use their power to «lord it over» the peoples, and the great ones do nothing but «make their authority felt» over their subjects. Jesus couldn’t be more emphatic: «Among you, none of that».
He doesn’t want to see anything like that among his own: «Anyone who wants to become great among you must be your servant, and anyone who wants to be first among you must be slave of all». In his community there’s no place for power that oppresses, only for service that helps. Jesus doesn’t want leaders seated on his right and left, but servants like him who give their lives for the rest.

Jesus makes clear that his Church isn’t built on the imposition of those from above, but on the service of those who are seated below. No hierarchy of any kind based on honor or domination fits is in his mind… nor methods and strategies of power. It’s service that builds up Jesus’ Church. He sees this as so important that he offers himself as an example: he hasn’t come to the world to lord it over others, but «to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many». Jesus doesn’t want triumphalism in the Church, but real service … to do one’s utmost for the weakest and for those most in need.
This message isn’t just for the leaders. Whatever our tasks and responsibilities, we all need to commit ourselves more to the service of his project. In the Church we don’t need imitators of James and John, but faithful followers of Jesus. Those who want to be important need to get to work and collaborate.
[José Antonio Pagola]

Gospel: Mark(10:35-45)

               “Jesus overturns all artificial ranking systems; whoever                  serves others is greatest
James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus and said, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” And he said to them, “What is it you want me to do for you?” And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They replied, “We are able.” Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John.
Jesus called his disciples and said to them, “You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man has come not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
