For Your Reflection: 

 

SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
Sunday September 19, 2021

Today’s Theme:

Today we hear James warn against selfish ambition, while the disciples quarrel over which one of them is the greatest. Jesus tells them the way to be great is to serve.  Then, to make it concrete, he puts in front of them a flesh-and-blood child.  We are called to welcome the children God puts in front of us, to make room for them in daily interaction, and to give them a place of honor in the assembly.
