Sunday Gospel Reflection
Dear friends in Christ,
It is shocking to realize that, right after the Lord shared with his disciples that He was going to suffer and die, they started to discuss among themselves about who was the greatest. It is even comical: the disciples were so imperfect and weak! And perhaps this helps us see the contrast with Christ’s love and patience. Rather than feeling offended or getting angry –as we would probably react— He transformed the disappointing situation into a learning experience. In that moment, He taught them about humility and service: being great, for a Christian, does not mean being successful or powerful, but loving. Love, that becomes service; love that becomes sacrifice.
