I mostly agree with Jeffrey Weiss about prayer. I think St. Paul would too.
Season after Pentecost | 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B)
Job 23:1-9, 16-17; Psalm 22:1-15; (Amos 5:6-7, 10-15; Psalm 90:12-17;) Hebrews 4:12-16; Mark 10:17-31
The prayers of the people call us. When we answer, we invite the possibility that it is we who will be poor, hungry, sick, and in prison.
