29th Sunday of Ordinary Time (2015)

“The Cross is laid on every Christian. It begins with the call to abandon the attachments of this world.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

John and James were looking for honor and status. But, Jesus considered true discipleship to be a call to service not prestige. Jesus said, “Whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant,” and “whoever wishes to be the first among you will be the slave of all.” Pope Francis showed us this during his recent trip to the USA and Cuba. Afterall, he is “the servant of the servants of God.”
