JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR OF MARK
23rd September 2018

When we encounter difficulties, seemingly intractable problems or painful reality, we can either pretend they’re not there, give up in despair, or bravely turn to face them.  The disciples of Jesus were only exhibiting normal human reactions when they heard the Master speak of his betrayal, suffering and death.  The one in whom they had put their trust and committed their lives looked as if he wasn’t going to be there for them much longer – and then what would happen?  They did not understand the mysterious reference to “rising again”.  It all sounded too much, and so “they were afraid to ask him” about it.

Fear drives us inward, not outward.  It mushrooms into nightmares, distorting our vision and impairing our judgement.  We scrabble around for consolation and compensation to numb the pain.  The disciples in the gospel fed off each other’s fears, debating which of them was the greatest.  The irony of their small-mindedness was lost on them.

Until Jesus challenged them, broke open their cocoon and revealed to them their self-deception.  “What were you arguing about?”  They said nothing.  There was nowhere to hide.

The only way to confront our fears is to face them.  Our weakness, our vulnerability, our helplessness is not a source of pride but humility.  It is like a child.  But keep your eyes courageously on that child who is you, noticing that Jesus has his arms around you, holding you before the world.  Notice how you find your gaze moving from yourself to the Jesus holding you from behind, whom you cannot see but feel his embrace.  “Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me,” he says.  “Look to me in your littleness, just as surely as I look to you to reveal me to the world.”

May the Lord bless you.

John
