What do you want me to do for you?

Readings for Sunday, October 25 — 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jeremiah 31:7-9; Psalm 126: 1-6; Hebrews 5:1-6; Mark 10:46-52

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • Bartimaeus makes a bold and direct request of Jesus, and Jesus responds by immediately giving him sight. How do you talk to God? Is your prayer as bold and direct as Bartimaeus’?

  • When have you received a clear answer to your prayers? When has the answer been less than clear?

  • How has God given you consolation and guidance throughout your life, perhaps even at times when it might have seemed like your prayers went unanswered?
