On Today’s Gospel 

Posted: February 25, 2017 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Blessed be the Lord our God, now and forever. Blessed are we to be called God’s children.

Blessed are we who leans on Him for counsel and wisdom. For He is the source of all good. Through Him we think with our hearts.

Blessed are we who recognizes that everyone born into the world is a child of His and embraces each one with a warm welcome.

Blessed are we who strive for Holiness each and everyday. For Jesus walks alongside us.

Blessed be the Lord our God. Now and forever. Amen

First reading
Ecclesiasticus 17:1-13

The Lord fashioned man from the earth, to consign him back to it. He gave them so many days’ determined time, he gave them authority over everything on earth.
He clothed them with strength like his own, and made them in his own image. He filled all living things with dread of man, making him master over beasts and birds.
He shaped for them a mouth and tongue, eyes and ears, and gave them a heart to think with. He filled them with knowledge and understanding,
and revealed to them good and evil.
He put his own light in their hearts to show them the magnificence of his works.
They will praise his holy name,
as they tell of his magnificent works. He set knowledge before them, he endowed them with the law of life.
Their eyes saw his glorious majesty, and their ears heard the glory of his voice. He said to them, ‘Beware of all wrong-doing’; he gave each a commandment concerning his neighbour. Their ways are always under his eye, they cannot be hidden from his sight.

Gospel
Mark 10:13-16

People were bringing little children to Jesus, for him to touch them. The disciples turned them away, but when Jesus saw this he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. I tell you solemnly, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’ Then he put his arms round them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing.
