Dear Friend in the Lord,

Greatest-Least” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus taking a child as an example, proclaims that “the least amongst them is the greatest.”  In doing so, Jesus is inviting His disciples to follow His example of living in humility, and be willing to trust God His Father totally in spite of the humiliation, when living His Will.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 9:46-50

An argument started between the disciples about which of them was the greatest. Jesus knew what thoughts were going through their minds, and he took a little child whom he set by his side and then he said to them, ‘Anyone who welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and anyone who welcomes me, welcomes the one who sent me. The least among you all is the one who is the greatest.’

John spoke up. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘we saw someone driving out devils in your name, and because he is not with us we tried to stop him.’ But Jesus said to him, ‘You must not stop him: anyone who is not against you is for you.’
