Reflection Starter from Pope Francis

"In the Gospel of the Day (Mk 9:20-37), the Lord overturns the criteria about what truly matters: greatness and success in God's eyes are measured by service. Not on what someone has, but on what someone gives. Do you want to be first? Serve. Those to be served above all are: those in need of receiving who can't give anything back. In welcoming those on the margins, the neglected, we welcome Jesus, for He is there. And in the little one, in the poor person we serve, we too receive God's tender embrace." - Pope Francis
