Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
irst Reading: Genesis 2:18-24
The Hebrew tradition perceived the inherent
equality between female and male in the sight of God,
although this understanding was not fully realized in
Israelite society. In this reading from the book of
Genesis, God forms a partner out of the man’s very
being. Since both man and woman are animated by
the breath of God and both are fashioned by God,
they are drawn together in unity.
econd Reading: Hebrews 2:9-11
For the next seven weeks, our second reading
will be taken from the Letter to the Hebrews. It was
written by an unknown Christian writer in the last third
of the first century and stresses the newness and
perfection of the covenant established in Christ. This
excerpt teaches that believers are the brothers and
sisters of Jesus.
ospel: Mark 10:2-16
In this passage from Mark’s Gospel, Jesus cites
the book of Genesis in order to highlight the
sacredness of marriage. In Jesus’ society, only men
could divorce their spouses, and women were often
victimized by arbitrary dismissals by their husbands.
Jesus insists that those who are married are united in
a binding covenant.
We invite you to prayerfully reflect

Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
THE FAMILY OF GOD
"From the beginning of creation, God made them male and female.
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,
and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh."
"Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it." Mark 10: 2-16
Here is a reflection I hope you will enjoy.
It's without fail: Place a baby in the midst of any group of adults - young or old, scholars or
carpenters, artists or accountants, wine connoisseurs or beer drinkers - and every adult in the room
will try to make the baby smile.
They'll gently shake the baby's hand, they'll make silly faces, they'll smile until their cheeks ache all to make the baby return the smile or maybe even chuckle. And if and when the baby smiles (after a
while, even a whispered coo will do), everyone will break into applause and cheers.
A child alternates between quiet fascination and chuckles whenever he or she is paying attention to
something. What makes sense, what's accepted, produces a smile; anything else is immediately
rejected.
Something inside of us tells us that if we can make a baby smile, then we're OK. A baby's smiling at
us confirms that we are unconditionally loved. A baby's smile is the universe's seal of approval. In a
baby's smile, we're connected, across the ages, to that which is good and beautiful - and hopeful.
[Adapted from "Laughter and Learning" by Joe Houben, Ode Magazine, August 2009.]
A baby's smile - and our determination to elicit such a smile - reflects the point Jesus is making in
today's Gospel about "accepting the kingdom of God like a child." Children possess an uncomplicated
but genuine, straight-to-the-heart understanding of the things of God that for some reason we adults
sadly outgrow. "Child-like faith" is never discouraged, never becomes cynical or jaded, never ceases
to be amazed and grateful for the many ways God reveals his presence in our lives. The faith of a
child is anything but "childish." It is this "childlike" quality of faith Jesus asks his followers to embrace:
faith that does not separate words and actions, faith that is centered in loving God and others without
condition or expectation. The power of such simple "child-like" faith is its ability to overcome every
rationalization, fear, complication and agenda in order to mirror the selfless generosity of Christ Jesus.
Only in embracing child-like
kindness,
compassion
and
forgiveness can we attain true
greatness in the kingdom of
God. (Connections)
In Christ’s Peace,
Father John
Assumption Parish
MARRIAGE: A WORK OF GOD
Attitudes toward marriage are heavily shaped by the
society and the culture in which we live. These attitudes
are communicated in the media. People of faith need to
step back and take another look at their understanding
of the marriage of a man and a woman.
Adults: How has my faith shaped my understanding
of marriage? Has the portrayal of marriage in the
popular culture distorted my faith understanding? How
can I correct that?
Children: How has God blessed me in my family
life?
A Family Perspective: Jesus' teaching about divorce
and remarriage can be a challenging one for many
people. The Church continues to uphold the strong and
positive teaching of Jesus that God intends for a man
and woman to make a lifelong commitment to one
another in the Sacrament of Marriage. Many of us,
however, know people whose marriage has not been a
lifelong commitment. The example of Jesus teaches us
that we are called to act with compassion and love in
our relationships with all, and especially when people
are hurting because of difficulties in their relationships.
Most importantly, we remember that when marriages
thrive, it is a sign of God's grace at work.
As you gather as a family, talk about what it means
to make a promise or a commitment to someone. Offer
examples of promises that are fairly easy to keep. Read
today's Gospel, Mark 10:2-16. Talk about examples of
promises and commitments that might be more difficult
to honor, like the marriage commitment that Jesus is
asked about in this Gospel. Talk about how we need
God to help us honor our commitment to love and care
for each other. Jesus teaches that we should be like
children before God, trusting God's promise to care for
us and asking for his help to keep our commitments to
love and care for others.
INTERESTED IN WOMEN'S HEALTH?

planning and fertility awareness not only help couples to
abide by church teaching but also diagnose and treat
reproductive and fertility issues? There is a GREAT
need in our diocese for individuals and couples to
prayerfully consider becoming instructors in any of
several methods of natural family planning. If you
currently practice any method of NFP or are interested
in learning more, please contact Kelley Pridgen at

40 DAYS FOR LIFE
40 Days for Life is a peaceful, prayerful group that
prays in front of Planned Parenthood in Morristown. We
will be starting a new vigil September 23rd to October 31st
(hours vary each day.)
We are there in peaceful prayer for the Mothers who
have appointments at Planned Parenthood, we are
there for the babies that will lose their lives, we are there
to witness that abortion is wrong to the people who walk
or drive by us and we are there for the workers at
Planned Parenthood. Once in a while, a miracle does
occur and the Mothers decide to keep their babies – we
will never know how many until we meet in heaven.
Your help is needed in this endeavor. Each of you
can make a difference and we need you and your
friends and family. First, please pray and fast – for the
Mothers, the babies, for employees at Planned
Parenthood and for the 40 Days volunteers. Second,
please join us in our vigil.
You may sign up at https://40daysforlife.com/
dashboard , email [email protected] or call Frances
M. Spilman at 973-627-1654 if you have any questions.
