Tuesday: Third Week in Ordinary Time

Mark 9:35: Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, you have made the world wonderful for us and have given your Son to redeem us. How can we ever thank you or repay you for your grace and kindness? Help us serve others with grace and kindness. Give us eyes to see people as you do; not judging by mere appearances, but valuing and treating people as Jesus does. We pray in the name of the Infant Jesus. Amen.

31And his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside they sent to him and called him. 32And a crowd was sitting about him; and they said to him, "Your mother and your brothers are outside, asking for you." 33And he replied, "Who are my mother and my brothers?" 34And looking around on those who sat about him, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers! 35Whoever does the will of God is my brother, and sister, and mother."
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
An early Christian martyr once said that "a Christian's only relatives are the saints" - namely those who have been saved by the blood of Christ and adopted as sons and daughters of God. Those who have been baptized into Jesus Christ and who live since his disciples enter into a new family, a family of "saints" now on earth and in heaven. Jesus changes the order of relationships and shows that factual kinship is not just a matter of flesh and blood. Our adoption as sons and daughters of God transforms all of our relationships and necessitates a new order of loyalty to God first and to his kingdom of justice and peace. Do we want to grow in love and friendship? Allow God's Holy Spirit to transform our heart, mind, and will to enable us to love freely and generously as he loves. Heavenly Father, you are the source of all true friendship and love. In all our relationships, may your love be our constant guide for choosing what is good and for rejecting what is contrary to your will.
