Lectio Divina | The cry of Bartimaeus, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me” (Mk 10:46-52).

On this thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time, we hear in Mark's Gospel account, the blind Bartimaeus was sitting at the Jericho city gates when Jesus passed through. He called out to him a number of times: ‘Have mercy upon me.' Jesus asks him what he wanted. The faithful Bartimaeus wanted to see. His faith has saved him. For more please click on the image.

Divine Office | In his goodness to all, God gives order and harmony to the world

In today's Office of Readings we encounter a reading from a letter by St. Clement I of Rome to the Church in Corinth, ca. 96 A.D.

Clement was the fourth Bishop of Rome after Peter, Linus and Cletus. He lived towards the end of the first century, but nothing is known for certain about his life. Clement’s letter to the Corinthian church has survived. It is the first known Patristic document, and exhorts them to peace and brotherly harmony.

For a reflection, "In his goodness to all, God gives order and harmony to the world," please click on the image.

Peace be with you!
