Jeremiah 18:18-20; Psalm 31; Matthew 20:17-28

Ministries of service

The same theme of ‘service’ in today’s Gospel, but here it is more about status and exercise of power within the community of the disciples, which for us today means within the Church. All who exercise Church ministries are to be servants – slaves even – from the ‘highest’ (the pope) – ‘down’ to the most humble parish ministry. Pope Francis has set us an example to follow.

‘Now Christ’s body is yourselves, each of you with a part to play in the whole’ (1 Corinthians 12:27).
