26th Sunday in Ordinary Time Mk 9:38-48
As Jesus and His disciples are walking he contines to talk to them about the Kingdom. "John said to Jesus, Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us. Jesus replied, Do not prevent him. There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. Whoever is not against us is for us. Americans are generous and rush to help others struck by hurricanes, drought, in need of food or shelter. They are FOR the Kingdom of Heaven. And then, its not always Catholics who are rushing with them to offer help. Those Catholics may not be for us. Give us that grace to be FOR Jesus Christ, King.
