Reading I                             Jeremiah 31.7-9

Responsorial Psalm:             The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.

Reading II                            Hebrews 5.1-6

Gospel:                                Mark 10.46-52


·         Mark has heard this story from St. Peter, whom he accompanied, so the scene is vivid. I imagine the margin of the dirt road on which Jesus is walking. There sits the blind beggar Bartimaeus, a symbol of all the marginalized.

·         Some of the bystanders scold him for making a fuss. Others pick up the quick response of Jesus and encourage Bartimaeus: “Take heart, get up, he is calling you.”

·         What are my reactions? What do I want Jesus to do for me?
