Let’s review some of the themes we find in the readings for the 30th Sunday of the Year.

1st Reading – Jeremiah 31:7-9

  • God’s power is revealed as the Lord delivers, gathers, consoles and leads the people.
  • The people respond with joy, praise, exultation and hope.

Psalm – 126:1-6

  • “The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.”
  • This psalm connects directly with the 1st reading as our human response to God’s goodness.

2nd Reading – Hebrews 5:1-6

  • Christ was chosen by the Father to offer his life for us.
  • Christ, because he understands our human weaknesses, deals with us patiently.

Gospel – Mark 10:46-52

  • The blind man, Bartimaeus, calls out to Jesus and asks for help so he can see.
  • Jesus acknowledges his faith and immediately heals him.
  • Bartimaeus then follows Jesus on the way.

Daily Mass: The danger of judging others, without judging ourselves. Catholic Inspiration

St. Paul switches his indictment on those who know God’s plan but do not apply it to themselves. Swift to judge others, they fail to evaluate their lives with the same scrutiny.
