May 24 – Thursday

Thursday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time

Reading: MK 9:41-50

 

Reflection:

‘Love changes everything’ is the title of a song from the musical ‘Aspects of Love’. It is love that makes the world go round despite the efforts of the musical Cabaret to convince us that it is money that makes the world go round.

 

Do we believe this? Do we act out this belief?

Do we hear the harsh words of Jesus his concern for the ‘little ones’? To lead astray the needy, helpless and defenceless ones is the blackest of sins.

If we have the salty seasoning of Jesus’ spirit in us, and stand up for the just rights of God’s ‘little ones’, we will enjoy peace of mind.

 

Prayer: We pray all together for the little ones.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, we thank You for the gift of children! They are a treasure, and raising them for You is a sacred trust. Equip us with your love and strength that we can become good models for our children. Amen.
