Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Our pastor was only partly joking when he said this might have been the beginning of denominations in Christianity:

John said to him, ‘Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.’ (Mark 9:38)

But Jesus tells him “Whoever is not against us is for us.”

Even the “little ones” – the ones that are new in faith (had anyone ever told us that before?)

Or especially the little ones.

Although, when it comes to that, don’t we all seem to be pretty little?
