Week I Psalter. 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Wisdom 2:12, 17-20. Psalm 53(54):3-6, 8. James 3:16–4:3. Mark 9:30-37.

The Lord upholds my life—Psalm 53(54):3-6, 8.

‘The Lord upholds my life.’

The world in which we live is constantly enticing us to believe that what we have – things, roles, status, standing and wealth – are the marks of wholeness. Wholeness, however, can only be found in our interior self, that place where the Spirit resides within us.

Our connection to God brings wholeness, and then, from a place of wholeness we are able to reach out to others in love and peace. When the Spirit emanates from our being, the great evangelisation takes place – because God is seen in us.

Are we willing to seek and trust God from within, in order to be God’s striking light within the world? If we are, we will find that when we welcome others, they desire to come.
