The request of John and James in this Sunday’s Gospel brings to light how even Jesus’ followers had the desire to be approved and rewarded in worldly terms. Whenever human beings gather, we ask who is best, number 1, champion, leader. As a family, we also struggle with disagreements and power struggles. Listen to the Gospel and learn how Jesus teaches us the importance of service and sacrifice in the life of a disciple. Jesus wants his followers to imitate him by being humble and becoming servants of all.
Jesus came to serve, not to be served and gave his life as a sacrifice to save us. Each time you go to Mass, know that the Lamb of God is offering himself for you in the sacrifice of the Eucharist. See the glory of his life being poured out for you, then let it inspire you to go and pour yourself out for others.
As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other these questions.
In your family, how do you struggle with authority? How do you put each other’s needs before your own?
Family Prayer: Open our eyes Lord to see the needs of others and grow in our desire to serve them. Amen

October 17, 2021 - 29th Sunday of Ordinary Time
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
In the Gospel of this Sunday, we hear James and John trying to secure for themselves a good place in God’s glory in Heaven. They look for a place of importance, close to Jesus himself, but they are motivated totally by self-interest and an immature vision of Heaven. Jesus is not surprised by their childish request, but he tries to bring the dialogue into the reality of things on earth and in heaven.
By talking about the cup of life and the baptism of initiation and using the answers given by the Apostles, Jesus reveals to them the truth of things that will happen, intending not to humiliate them. Jesus teaches them about the way that authority should be administered and used, to accomplish its purpose and not as a personal advantage over others. The great lesson about the authority, is about the prominence of service and of common good, seen from the position of the Savior, who as Jesus stated: “came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28).
10/17/21 - Vigésimo Noveno Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario
Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos:
En el Evangelio de este Domingo escuchamos a Santiago y Juan tratando de asegurarse un buen lugar en la gloria de Dios en el Cielo. Buscan un lugar de importancia, cerca del mismo Jesus, pero están motivados totalmente por el interés propio y la visión inmadura del Cielo. A Jesus no le sorprende su solicitud infantil, pero trata de llevar el dialogo a la realidad de las cosas en la tierra y en el cielo.
Hablando de la copa de la vida y del bautismo de iniciación y utilizando las respuestas dadas por los Apóstoles, Jesus les revela la verdad de las cosas que suceden, con la intención de no humillarlos. Jesus les enseña como se debe administrar y usar la autoridad, para lograr su propósito y como una ventaja personal sobre los demás. La gran lección sobre autoridad, es sobre la prominencia del servicio y del bien común, visto desde la posición del Salvador, quien como dijo Jesus: no vino para ser servido, sino para servir, y para dar vida en rescate por muchos.
