They prophesied the grace that was to be yours, so be sober set your hope fully upon the grace that is coming to you.
A reading from the first Letter of Saint Peter ( 1 Peter 1:10- 16)

Beloved: The prophets who prophesied of the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired about the salvation of souls; they inquired what person or time was indicated by the Spirit of Christ within them when predicting the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glory. It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things which have now been announced to you by those who preached the good news to you through the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look. Therefore gird up your minds, be sober, set your hope fully upon the grace that is coming to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

The word of the Lord.

ALLELUIA Matthew 11:25
Alleluia. Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the kingdom. Alleluia.


You will receive a hundredfold now in this time with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark (Mark 10:28-31)

At that time: Peter began to say to Jesus, “Behold, we have left everything and followed you.” Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you; there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. But many that are first will be last, and the last first.”

The Gospel of the Lord.


It is true that following Jesus has its pain. Joyfully enough, it also has an immeasurable reward. Interestingly, Jesus teaches that the greater one’s following the greater one’s reward. A great reward awaits all who leave everything to follow Jesus. To follow Jesus is to put your trust in nothing that is not God, that is not perfect, that is not noble, that is not charitable, that is not true, and that is not holy. To follow Jesus is to free your mind from the worries of the world, the desires of the flesh, the pride of life, and the lust of the eyes. To follow Jesus is to take total refuge in the grace of God.


Following Jesus involves sacrifice and greater level of detachment. This is the way to go and that is the way that pleases the Lord.

Our Mother Mary made a lot of sacrifice to follow the Lord. She persevered till the end. She left so many things to answer the call of the Lord and when she did she never looked back. God comes first above every other thing in our life and we must be ready to give up every other thing please God and to be with Him like our Mother Mary did.

Let us pray,
Lord Jesus Christ, give me the grace to let go of every other thing in this life to follow you like the Blessed Virgin Mary did. May my detachment and sacrifice win me eternal life. Amen. And May the Almighty God bless you: the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Meditation: Mark 10:17-27
