Gospel Reading Mark 9:41-50

As disciples of Jesus we enjoy a unique privilege - belonging to Jesus. We belong to his family and as such we share his divine dignity. Even the least service rendered to Jesus in his disciples will not go unrewarded. "Whatever you did for one of the least of these little ones of mine, you did it to me," the King would say at the last judgement. Small deeds of kindness and help do matter. Then comes the warning to those who lead the little ones to sin. How uncomprising are you, Lord, with the sources of sin! How drastic the steps you suggest to keep safe of the snares of the evil one and to be worthy of heaven!
