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:

 

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

 

and belongs to me.

 

Jesus,
all we want
is to belong to you.
