Mark 9:30-37
17th Sunday after Pentecost

Jesus took a child and help it in his arms and said, unless you also have the posture of welcoming those such as this, you will not be able to welcome me or the one who sent me.

A foundational posture for the follower of Jesus is one of Welcome.

The icon of Jesus this Sunday is written by Sr Mary McManamon depicting an African rendering of Christ.
