For this weekend's Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time you will find the scripture texts and background material on them here and hints for helping to prepare children to hear the Word here.
The gospel passage from Mark offers the story of the cure of Bartimaeus, a blind man. The first lesson, from the prophet Jeremiah, pairs with this story as it references the Lord gathering his own from the ends of the world, with the blind and the lame in their midst.
The second lesson is another in a series of readings from the Letter to the Hebrews. The text refers to the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) which our Jewish neighbors observed just recently on September 22.
