READING I: James 3:1-10
RESPONSORIAL: Psalms 12:2-3, 4-5, 7-8
GOSPEL: Mark 9:2-13
These few words tell us so much. First they tell us that Jesus is divine and then they tell us that everything we need to know about God the Father is contained in the words of Jesus. So often we go to other places looking for the answer and it is here in front of us all the time. And so often we are let down by the events, news, ideas etc which seemed to hold so much promise.
It is human nature to seek out the softer option. If we would simply keep ours focused on Jesus we would see and hear all we need to see and hear; simple, but we like to complicate things.
