The People of old rejected Christ because he was from their own times and was even a neighbor to them. Today people reject the authority of the Church and the Pope. They prefer things of the PAST. this is exactly what the people did in the
time of Christ, they preferred Elijah and the other prophets of old. They doubted the authority of Christ.

Today, even some Catholics challenge the teachings of the Church. They would quote bible verses and so on. But i ask, is there a difference between the Authority of Peter and Benedict? Of course not. Though these are two different persons, yet they share the same authority before Christ. So that when Peter speaks to us in the New Testament, and when The Pope speaks to us in His writings, the two are from the same Chair, and have EQUAL force.

Christ did not come for the people of old alone, neither did the authority his gave them die with them, rather he has promised us certain things:

1. That the gates of hell shall not conquer this Church, (which means they can neither mislead anyone nor be misled)

2. That he has given them (their leader) the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven (which means he wields the power of Christ on earth, to teach and to forgive sins)

therefore anyone who speaks against this Church says:

1. That Christ is a liar and a looser. That the gates of hell has taken over his Bride, the Church. (and Christ is listening)

2. That Christ has no authority, since it has died with peter to whom he gave it, and that he has no power to stretch it further than Peter. (and Christ is listening)

The Church remains the UNTAINTED, INFALLIBLE AND PERFECT BRIDE of Christ. Anyone who bad-mouths her, bad-mouths the Lord Himself !!!

TWENTY EIGHT SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (YEAR B)

Reflection on the Gospel of Today (Mark 10: 17 - 30)

# Please Read the Gospel before this reflection except you already know what the reading says #

REFLECTION:

The Lord appreciates the efforts we put in answering His call. His intention is not to burden us with commands we honestly cannot keep, rather he wants to provide us with opportunities to p
rove our faithfulness while He draws closer to us with more blessings, more peace, more light and more love.

If we love someone, we naturally prefer him to others. For love itself implies preference. So that when you say to your wife "I love you" this implies "i love you MORE than the other women in the city".

Christ calls us to self-abandonment; to a love affair with himself. He calls us to prefer his will over ours, His love over that of the world, His commands over that of our earthly superiors, he calls us to choose what he lovingly prepares for us, to love the world for his sake, and to obey our lawful superiors for his sake.
He wants us to be good, to be happy. His intention is to bring us closer to the purpose of our existence; loving him above all things and consequently offering him sacrificial love and sacrifice, and being with him forever in heaven.

Now the Lord has given his life and has risen to take possession of us by His Spirit. We are to recognize in our Souls the dynamic action of this same Spirit who keeps purifying us from within; detaching our hearts from material things and drawing us closer to God by doing his will. For Christian perfection does not lie in the ability to perform miracles or see vision, but in the ability to set aside our will for the will of the Almighty God.

This is what the rich man in the Gospel lacked; his will was not in total union with the will of God. Today this is what the Lord invites us to reflect upon. May his peace quiet the noise we hear from within and without, that we may hear his voice more clearly, follow him more closely and love him more dearly, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. Happy Sunday!
