Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Use this 52-page unit study to help teach children that we should desire and be willing to serve others for love of God. This lesson is based on Mark 10:35-45.
In this week’s Gospel, we ponder our desire to imitate Christ. As James and John try to secure seats of glory next to Christ, the Lord reveals the impossibility of fulfilling their request. The greater among them must be willing to imitate Him in service, ministry, suffering, and death. He reminds them of His true mission which is to suffer and die for the redemption of mankind. As followers of Jesus, we too must desire and be willing to serve others for love of God.
