Our clergy should not lord it over people.

Wednesday, 2/28/18

Toda's Gospel simply reinforces the message of yesterday's Gospel; namely that a true minister of Jesus must be one who willingly suffers with Jesus.

At first, the disciples of Jesus thought tat he was going to establish a powerful new kingdom. The mother of two of them came to Jess, asking for her sons positions of wealth and strength in his kingdom.

Clovis, the king of the nation of the Franks, wishing to honor his priests, put them on a level with his nobility. That was fine, except that by putting them on a high station it came to be seen as his putting them far above common Christians. But jesus said, that his true ministers needed to see themselves as the servants of all.
