Sunday Evangelium by Father Andrew Pinsent        
"So these 3 groups - the crowd, the disciples and the remnant at Calvary - represent the stages of the Christian life. As we accompany Christ to Calvary, our souls are rooted in faith, purified in hope and perfected in love. This is not an easy path, as Jesus had warned James and John "Are you able to drink the chalice that I am to drink?" Not everyone is willing to follow this path straight away and God in His mercy will often make the offer again."
