25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Keep youreyes on the Kingdom of God - Christ and the Child at the Center. Join Dina Marie Hale on this weekly broadcast as she reflects upon the readings for the Sunday Mass. On the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time we read from the Letter of Saint James that the wisdomfrom above is pure while Psalm 54 reminds us that "The Lord upholds my life." In the Gospel of Mark Jesus offers three messages to his apostles and to us today: the reality of suffering, the true meaning of greatness, and to be the one who serves. Join us forthis reflection with Dina Marie.
