Proclamation of the Gospel (Mk 9.30 to 37)
At that time, Jesus and his disciples crossed the Galilee. He did not want anyone to know that, because he was teaching his disciples. He said to them, "The Son of Man will be handed over to men and they will kill him. But three days after his death, he will rise again. "
And the disciples did not understand these words and were afraid to ask. They came to Capernaum. Being in the house he asked them, "What are you arguing about on the way?"But they were silent because the road had discussed who was the greatest.Jesus sat down, called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first must be last of all and the one that fit all!"
Then he took a little child and had him stand among them and embracing her, said: "Whoever receives in my name one of these children, it is I who will be welcoming. And who welcome me, is welcoming, not me, but him that sent me. "
LECTIO DIVINE - WORD prayerful reading. Elements of the scene: Jesus and his disciples through Galilee. Jesus reveals his passion, death and resurrection. Jesus placed a child in their midst.
Human vanity is always present in life social interaction. And with the Disciples was no different. They were discussing who was the greatest among them. The Master wisely takes a poe child in their midst and says that "whoever does not become like one of these little ones, do not enter the Kingdom of Heaven !.
The plug of discíspulos had not yet fallen. They were afraid to ask, says the Evangelist Mark. And the Master Jesus, shoot, "Who wants to be first must be last of all and the one that fits all."LOVE IS SERVING !. Like the disciples were not yet freed themselves within the human logic, there was some dispute between them as to who was the greatest. Jesus ends up with all this, and says that the greater is the SERVER everyone!
GROUP TO DISCUSS:
0.1. In our community who is the "greatest"?
0.2. There vanities game in our community?
0.3. How to overcome and reconcile the conflicting people?
