1 Pt 5:5b-14
Ps 89:2-3, 6-7, 16-17
Mk 16:15-20

In the first reading, what words or phrases stand out to you? Here is what stood out for me: humility, humble yourselves, be sober and vigilant, restore, and strengthen. The passage is telling us to have peace and give our worries to the Lord, for the Lord will bestow great grace and love upon us. Nearing the end of my senior year, these words of wisdom hold great meaning for me. Am I stressed, scared, nervous, or excited about what my future holds? I am all of the above, but I have great peace knowing that my life is full of God’s good grace.

We are asked to be steadfast in faith, yet humble in our lives. The Eleven that Jesus spoke to in the Gospel of Mark reading did just that. They were in solidarity with others, remaining humble and walking in Jesus’ footsteps the whole way. So I tell myself, 'Asia, when you graduate remember to remain steadfast in your faith, but to also remain humble, knowing the suffering of others calling out to you.' Let us remember this as we encounter hardships throughout our lives. Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.
