31st SUNDAY (B) November 4, 2018

Deuteronomy 6: 2-6; Psalm 18; Hebrews 7: 23-28; Mark 12: 28b-34

By Jude Siciliano, OP

From today’s Gospel reading

When Jesus saw that the scribe answered with understanding,

He said to him,

"You are not far from the kingdom of God."

Reflection:

Mark’s gospel began with a promise by John the Baptist that the one who was coming after him was mightier and would baptize with the Holy Spirit (1:7-8). The new life Jesus gives is the gift of the Spirit which enables recipients to fulfill the law of love he has articulated for the scribe. The scribe is, "not far from the kingdom of God." But he can only enter it through the gift God gives.

So, we ask ourselves:

  •  What are the signs in my life that, like the scribe, I am "not far from the kingdom of God?

  •  Am I a sign of the kingdom of God to others? When and how?
