With God:

With God we needn’t give up or run away; with God we can confront our troubles and overcome them in a way that allows us to enter the deeper reality of the Promised Land of his love.

Service - Motives:

In today's Gospel, Jesus reprimanded James and John for wanting to secure the 'highest' places in heaven. It is often not possible to serve God purely out of love for Him because of our human sinfulness. Still, we should try to overcome our self-love and self-glory.


He alone loves the Creator perfectly who manifests a pure love for his neighbor

- Saint Bede the Venerable (672-735)
