29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 22, 2012


Ambition is a problem for all of us, and this Sunday we encounter that it is also a problem for Sts. James and John.

Some of us may even be astonished at their command of Jesus: Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you. To be specific, they want the glory and honor of sitting at Jesus’ right and left.

However, we must all be careful what we ask for; for surely they do not understand the implications of what they are asking.

This is not to say all amibtion is bad, but their reason for their ambition is at question.

All of this leads us to a question: what do we do with our ambition and how do we keep a healty balance?
