 “Reflection”
“Look out for Number One!” the saying goes. Society often encourages us to take care of ourselves first. This easily leads to a sense of selfishness, feelings of jealousy, and actions of greed. As Christians, we know that these attitudes are antithetical to the model of Jesus, who emptied himself to become flesh and offered himself as the ultimate sacrifice. Let us pray that we are able to avoid the temptations of jealousy and envy in our lives

 “WELCOMING HIS CROSS

The first reading sounds like one of the Psalms that evokes Christ’s passion or like a Servant Songs from Isaiah. In fact it comes from the Book of Wisdom, one of the latest books in the Bible, written in Egypt (Alexandria) and composed not in Hebrew but in Greek. The situation it describes, about a righteous person who is insulted, tortured and executed, is one that is not confined to the sufferings of the Jews. It is a situation that arises at all times. So the passion and death of Jesus, which he predicts to his disciples, is not in itself an extraordinary destiny. Many people are unjustly condemned and never clearly vindicated. Again, that Jesus dies as a martyr is not absolutely unique. Many have been prepared to risk their lives to resist injustice and oppression. What makes the passion of Christ unique is its saving role, explained in clear terms later in Mark’s gospel: “The Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mk 10:45). Many today find the idea of the death of Jesus as a saving sacrifice to be objectionable, as implying a cruel God torturing his son in order to avenge himself on humankind. But we need to let the message of salvation claim our hearts and our minds. Jesus’s life befits a Messiah, bringing healing and enlightenment and whose death offers salvation to the whole human race. God the eternal Father allowed his beloved Son to enter so deeply into our suffering, so as to save us “from within”. If we embrace the Messiah as the Word of God proclaims him, we will find that his life-giving resurrection also becomes credible.
The minds of the disciples are elsewhere. The question that bothers them in their discussion is which of them will have the highest place in the Kingdom. It even gives rise to a quarrel. It is easy to laugh at them, but the laugh is on us. Called to follow Christ, we worry about tiny advantages and securities as if Christ never was. Jesus appeals to the disciples’ ambition: “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.” Indeed Jesus often appeals to our low level of thinking to inspire us with the ambition of imitating him, who came “not to be served, but to serve” (Mk 10:45).
He took a little child and said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.’” Today a wave of refugees sweeps across Europe. When we welcome these children we honor the Son of Man, who had “nowhere to lay his head” (Mt 8:20; Lk 9:58). In welcoming others we are welcoming God into our lives. To welcome those who need us is also to welcome Christ himself.

Gospel: Mark(9:30-37)

“After predicting his passion, Jesus calls us to be like servants of all
Jesus and his disciples came from the mountain and began to go through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again.” But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him.
Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the way?” But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest.
He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.” Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.”
