30th SUNDAY (B) October 28, 2018

Jeremiah 31: 7-9; Psalm 126; Hebrews 5: 1-6; Mark 10: 46-52

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Jesus said to [Bartimaeus]:

"What do you want me to do for you?"

The blind man replied to him,

"Master I want to see."

 

Reflection:

 

Bartimaeus has no possessions except for his cloak. But he even casts that aside to get up and come to Jesus. He is a powerful symbol for us: what little he has he puts aside to get closer to Jesus.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Is there some possession or some way I am living that keeps me from getting closer to Jesus?

  • How shall I begin to change?
