TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME Lectionary #134
The readings ask us to continue our reflections on the ministry of Jesus and of the Church.

Wisdom 2:12, 17-20. No good deed goes unpunished, the cynics say. This text seems to suggest that the cynics are right.

Suggested Common Psalm

Ps 91: Be with Me, Lord

James 3:16—4:3. God’s presence is revealed in the behavior of the community. Where God is, there are peace, mercy, and good fruits.

Mark 9:30-37. On the journey, Jesus repeats the “messianic secret”—that the Son of Man is to be killed but will rise on the third day. The way of life to be inaugurated by this death and resurrection is not one of competing privilege but one that embraces humble service in Christ’s name.
