Tuesday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time (2013)

1 Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.
Prayer ...
Lord Jesus, you have presented all of our prayers to our Father and we thank you for this grace. We assure that we will do all we can to bring glory of our Father, to live at peace and to serve in unity with those who belong to you. Please bless our family with more passion for the unity that you desire. In Infant Jesus' name and through the blessed Holy Spirit we pray. Amen.

Scripture: Mark 9:30-37
30They went on from there and passed through Galilee. And he would not have any one know it; 31 for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, "The Son of man will be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him; and when he is killed, after three days he will rise." 32 But they did not understand the saying, and they were afraid to ask him. 33 And they came to Caper'na-um; and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you discussing on the way?" 34 But they were silent; for on the way they had discussed with one another who was the greatest. 35 And he sat down and called the twelve; and he said to them, "If any one would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all." 36 And he took a child, and put him in the midst of them; and taking him in his arms, he said to them, 37 "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me."
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus made a dramatic gesture by embracing a child to show his disciples who really is the greatest in the kingdom of God. What can a little child possibly teach us about greatness? Children in the ancient world had no rights, position, or privileges of their own. Jesus, himself, is our model. He came not to be served, but to serve. God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the modest. If we want to be filled with God's life and power, then we need to empty ourselves of everything which stands in the way pride, self-seeking glory, vanity, etc. God wants empty vessels so he can load them with his own glory, power, and love. Loving Infant Jesus, by your cross you have saved the world and revealed your glory and triumph over sin and death. May we never fail to see your glory and victory in the cross. Help us to conform our life to your will and to follow in your way of holiness.
