READING I: 1 Kings 11:29-32; 12:19
RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 81:10-11ab, 12-13, 14-15
GOSPEL: Mark 7:31-37
Sometimes when we think of Jesus, we forget that he is man and focus only on his divinity. But here Jesus uses something at hand and does what needs to be done. If only we were as practicable; seeing what needs to be done and doing it. What do we do? We form a committee, either in our mind or in society; then we put off doing anything because we begin to think of all the reasons nothing can be done!
