Readings for Wednesday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time

Fr. Jim Heiser's
Homily for Pentecost

Servant to All

The disciples were on the way,

going up to Jerusalem,
and Jesus went ahead of them.
They were amazed,

and those who followed were afraid.
Taking the Twelve aside again,

he began to tell them
what was going to happen to him.
“Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem,

and the Son of Man will be handed over

to the chief priests and the scribes, 

and they will condemn him to death
and hand him over to the Gentiles

who will mock him, spit upon him,

scourge him, and put him to death,
but after three days he will rise.”
Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee,
came to Jesus and said to him,
‘Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.”
He replied, ‘What do you wish me to do for you?”
They answered him, “Grant that in your glory
we may sit one at your right

and the other at your left.”
Jesus said to them,

“You do not know what you are asking.

Can you drink the chalice that I drink
or be baptized with the baptism

with which I am baptized?”
They said to him, ‘We can.”
Jesus said to them,

“The chalice that I drink, you will drink,
and with the baptism with which I am baptized,

you will be baptized; but to sit at my right or at my left

is not mine to give

but is for those for whom it has been prepared.”
When the ten heard this, they became indignant at James and John.
Jesus summoned them and said to them,
“You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles
lord it over them,
and their great ones make their authority over them felt.
But it shall not be so among you.
Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant;
whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all.
For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve
and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Everyone is cordially invited to participate in the new scripture study program starting Thursday, June 18. The class will be facilitated by Mary Slipp and will meet weekly on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30pm in the Parish Hall. We will be starting with the gospel of Matthew which is a 10 week session. Each class will begin with a discussion session based on Scripture that we will be given to read during the week. Discussion will be followed by viewing a DVD based on that week’s scripture. There is a fee of $15 for the Bible commentary and study guide. Please contact Stacy Preszler (751-4922) or Mary Slipp (673-1625) to sign up. We look forward to seeing you there!
