Gospel Reflection: Mark 9: 38-50

Here’s a thoughtful prayer reflection from Anne Osdieck at The Center for Liturgy Sunday Web Site.


Gospel Reflection

(inspired by Mark 9:38-43, 45, 47-48)


For whoever is not against us is for us. Mark 9:40

Who is for us?

Jesus’ answer:


who extends a helping hand,
who shelters the homeless,
who cares for the earth,
who feeds the hungry,
teaches the ignorant,
stands for justice,
a cup of water
in my name
is all for us,


and belongs to me.


all we want
is to belong to you.
