Let’s take a look at some of the central themes in the readings for the 29th Sunday of the Year.

1st Reading – Isaiah 53:10-11

  • The Church applies this passage of the “suffering servant” to Jesus Christ, whose saving passion and death is offered for “the many.”
  • This passage is referenced heavily during Holy Week.

Psalm – 33:4-5,18-20,22

  • “Lord, let your mercy be on us, as we place our trust in you.”
  • Psalm 33 praises God and encourages us to turn to the Lord with open hearts.

2nd Reading – Hebrews 4:14-16

  • The humanity of Jesus is emphasized, and he understands our temptations and weaknesses.
  • Because he became like us, we can confidently approach the Son of God to receive mercy, grace and help.

Gospel – Mark 10:35-45

  • Jesus responds to the question posed by James and John with a reflection on the role of suffering.
  • The Lord then shows how service to others reveals true greatness in the kingdom of heaven.
