“WOULD YOU MAKE ALL THINGS NEW?” (Mk 2:18-22):  21 January 2008 (St. Agnes, Monday)

Today’s Readings

One of the most unforgettable scenes in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” has Mary rushing to her fallen son after overcoming her own fears.  Gathering strength from her mother, Jesus picks himself and his cross up and tells her, “Behold, I make all things new!”

Reading about old wineskins and new wineskins in today’s gospel reminded me of that scene and Christ’s words to his mother.
