In our First Reading, From the Book Of Numbers

The "spirit" in this passage is not the Holy Spirit. It is a charism to prophesy, which is somehow related to God. Moses enjoyed this charism and shared it with the seventy elders. But this spirit was directly given to some others also. Joshua did not take it, which Moses ask: " Are you jealous?" As God's word to us, this tradition teaches that God's gifts are not limited to certain people only.

The Responsorial Psalm calls for praising and worshiping our God who is so very mighty, the maker and ruler of all Creation
- but who forgives us our sins.
Such Love deserves our time, gratitude, joy to our heart and praise!

In the Second Reading, From James

James has severe words of warning for the rich who exploit the poor. A generous Church contributor who sins against social justice in any form is a hypocrite. Underpaying domestics and soothing our consciences by giving them the leftovers of our food and some old clothes is a crime. against justice.

In the Gospel of Mark

The spirit (charism) to expel demons was given to Jesus and his disciples first, but also to others. John did not like it and tried to stop one who had it from using it. Jesus said in reply: "Do not prevent him." We should learn to see God's Spirit at work wherever we meet good people. This simply recognizes that a ray of truth and much goodness are found everywhere. We should respect and love every conscientious person no matter how different he or she may be!

“Lord, I too lack the necessary faith to see the blessings that accompany Your Cross, as well as the many crosses I am given in life. Help me to be purified in my faith so that I can see Your hand at work in all things, even suffering, injustice and persecution. May I see life from Your perspective alone. Jesus, I trust in You."
