Witnesses do not lose themselves in words, but rather they bear fruit. They do not complain about others and the world, but start with themselves. They remind us that God is not to be proven, but shown; not announced with proclamations but witnessed by example.
Those to be served above all are: those in need of receiving who can’t give anything back. In welcoming those on the margins, the neglected, we welcome Jesus, for He is there. And in the little one, in the poor person we serve, we too receive God’s tender embrace. #GospelOfTheDay
In the #GospelOfTheDay (Mk 9:20-37), the Lord overturns the criteria about what truly matters: greatness and success in God’s eyes are measured by service. Not on what someone has, but on what someone gives. Do you want to be first? Serve.
From our gift the life and health of others, sick and suffering, may spring forth, helping to reinforce a culture of help, giving, hope and life. Society needs these concrete gestures of solidarity and generous love, to ensure the understanding that life is something sacred.#WMDD
