A hundred times more

May 29, 2018 6:00 am

“Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the Gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come. But many that are first will be last, and the last will be first.” (MK 10: 29-31)

Our gift of selves, given for the sake of our Lord and “for the sake the Gospel,” visible in many different ways (from houses or lands to siblings or parents), will always meet the most generous God, Who gave Himself for us and for our salvation. Whatever we give will be answered “a hundred times more.”

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
