Thoughts on Tuesday's Gospel

MK 10:28-31

Today, Jesus promises that the one who give up things for the sake of the kingdom will not go unrewarded. Though their may be suffering and persecutions, we will not suffer alone but will have the comfort of all of our brothers and sisters who have joined us in sacrificing everything for God's glory.

Again, this passage is a great comfort to the religious who has indeed sacrificed the possibility of marriage, of having children. However, as the religious immerses himself in the ministry to and with the people of God, they find themselves becoming spiritual fathers and mothers as they teach the faith and find themselves becoming spiritual children as they learn more about the mystery of God from those to whom they minister.
