"Being concerned for each other" also entails being concerned for their spiritual well-being.

GREET ONE ANOTHER - PEACE TO ALL WHO ARE IN CHRIST
 
"Being concerned for each other" also entails being concerned for their spiritual well-being.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
Today the Church honors Saint Mark. He accompanied both St. Paul and St. Peter on their missionary journeys. The Gospel attributed to him shows signs of having been written for a Roman audience, he was St. Peter's secretary there. Peter closes his first Epistle with a reference to "Mark, my son." It is entirely appropriate, therefore, to read from this first reading on the feast of St. Mark, as it falls within the joyful season of Easter. This letter provides us with a treasure of thoughts about baptism, emphasizing how central it was to the worship of the early Church and continues to be so today, especially in the Holy liturgy.
 
In many Churches in the East and West, Mark is honored this day. Each of the four Gospel accounts gives us a portrait of Jesus Christ, His life, mission, and teaching. The Gospels each different in style, all have a common thread and purpose - the proclamation of the good news of Jesus, the Savior of the world.
 
The Responsorial Psalm focuses on the wonders of the world to come through all generations. "My kindness is established forever; in heaven you have confirmed your faithfulness."
 
In the message of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI for Lent this was written. "Being concerned for each other" also entails being concerned for their spiritual well-being. An aspect of the Christian life, which I believe has been quite forgotten: fraternal correction in view of eternal salvation. We are very sensitive to the idea of charity and caring about the physical and material well-being of others, but almost completely silent about our spiritual responsibility towards our brothers and sisters. Our Pope Emeritus also wrote to avoid the danger that our hearts can become hardened by a sort of "spiritual anesthesia" which numbs us to the suffering of others.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: We pray that through the grace that comes from our heavenly Father may it help us to greet one another and bring peace to all of us who are in Christ!
 
We are members in the One Body which is the Church!
