""Are you still without perception."" Mark 8 : 17

Reading : St. James 1 : 12-18 “Happy the person who stands firm when trials come.  He will prove himself/herself, and will receive the crown of life that the Lord promises those who have him.”

Psalm 93 v.18,19 : “When I think  I have lost my foothold, your mercy, Lord, holds me up.  When cares increase in my heart your consolation calms my soul.”

Gospel : Mark 8 : 14-21   Jesus was speaking about the yeast of the Pharisees and of Herod,  the disciples were on a different wavelength until Jesus words; “Why are you talking about having no bread ?  Do you not understand ?  Have you no perception.  Are your minds closed ?   Have you eyes that do no see ?  Ears that do not hear ?  Or do you not remember ?  When I broke the five loaves among the five thousand,  how many baskets full of scraps did you collect ?  They answered twelve.”

Prayer Open our hearts, O Lord, to accept the words of your Son. Amen
