St. Peter Damian

Mk 9: 30-37

They went on from there and passed 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.”

Our Journey with Jesus

We are quickly approaching Lent—a time to reflect on our lives and how to reform them to live more like Jesus. Many times, this interior reflection will take us to places we don’t want to advertise to the world. In today’s gospel, too, Jesus wanted to get away from the crowds because he knew of the horrible things that were going to happen to him. Imagine the anguish he must have felt and the need to confide with his close friends.

As we approach Lent, let us journey with Jesus as a friend and share in confidence those things that we need to confide, trusting that he loves those parts too.

Prayer

Jesus my Savior, stir up in my heart the desire to walk always in your footsteps.
May everything I accomplish today begin with your grace, 
always for your greater honor and glory. Amen.
