30th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B 28th October 2018.
I still remember the blind woman in my home town, when she would not perceive me, a young boy, quietly coming up to sit down beside her; she was very nice with me and I enjoyed talking with her. She had so many sweet stories and experiences to tell a young boy! She was grateful for every minute I spent with her and I always left her with a sense of joy and peace.
Reflection 28thSunday OT. Year B
Wis 7: -11; Ps 89; He 4: 12-13; Mk 10: 17-30
At the heart of the 28th Sunday Ordinary Time year B, there is a question addressed to Jesus by a person whom Matthew calls only ‘the young man’ (Mt 19: 22). For Mark (and Luke), he seems to have been an older man who asks how to inherit life. He wanted to get not any kind of life, but life forever, life to the full, eternal life (Mk 10:17). The man we encounter in the Gospel was surely a real religious man. He may be called today a ‘good church goer’. In fact, without any doubt he said that he has kept all the precepts of God (Mk 10: 20).
26th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
The Gospel reading of this Sunday brings us the deepening of Jesus' teaching the disciples the meaning of: "open your mind and follow me." For example, their affirmation "Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him because he does not follow us." That is, when John and the others discovered that someone who was not part of their group was also ministering in Jesus' name.
Reflection on the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B (September 16 )
(First Reading: Isaiah 50, 5-9; Ps 114: 1-6, 8-9; Second Reading: James 2: 14-18; Gospel: Mark 8, 27-35)
The twenty fourth Sunday of ordinary time suggests to us the theme of the Suffering Messiah. The gospel of Mark puts at the central stage Jesus as the messiah, while it clears away all the misleading ideas about him. This Gospel is placed at the center of the Gospel of Mark when the fame of Jesus is at the peak and is the fruit of the miracles he has accomplished: the healing of a Syrophaenician woman’s daughter, the healing of a deaf and dumb man, the feeding the of crowd Mark 8, 1-10 and the healing of the blind man Mark 8, 22-26.
