My Gospel Reflections for June 8, Friday of the Ninth Week Mark 12:35-37


My Reflections:
Son of David, Messiah and Christ these three names have a common denominator one way or the other it means Savior. And who else is this savior? It’s none other than Jesus but unlike our common notion of a savior who comes in with swashbuckling powers ala avengers. Jesus our savior has none of their powers.

His power is derived in His being powerless and His heroic action is not shown with swaggering exploits. It is rather shown in his humility and self sacrifice.

Let us reflect and ponder on the powerless Jesus on the cross and let us discover His power underneath it.
