Intro to the Readings
Proverbs 31:10-31 – Psalm 1 – James 3:13-4:3, 7-8a – Mark 9:30-37
We listen to a reading from Proverbs today – a reading about wisdom – sophia – about a woman – a wife – a mother.
Psalm One is a communal wisdom hymn that reminds us of the Torah - the Law.
From the Letter of James we will hear about heavenly wisdom. We also hear about resisting evil.
In the Gospel we listen as the Lord speaks about his betrayal and death. As well the disciples had argued about which one of them was the greatest, and a child is put among them.
Let us listen seeking wisdom.
Let us listen resisting evil.
Let us listen with a child among us.
