SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 20-21, 2018
In today’s Gospel Jesus teaches his disciples that whoever wishes
to be great among them must be a servant, just as he came to be a servant.

the Gospel and to support those who make evangelization their servant ministry
throughout the world. Not to be a servant of the Gospel would be poor
stewardship. But how do we serve the Gospel in our daily lives? How do we
support others who serve those who have never heard the Gospel or who have
chosen to reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
