Arthur J. Dewey concludes his commentary on this coming Sunday's gospel with this observation: "It is ironic that in our modern world, where the 'garbage of humanity' are usually overlooked, we are called by the Markan Jesus to identify with this very 'refuse' in order not to be found in the garbage heap [Gehenna] on the last day." -- p. 137, The Word in Time (New Berlin, Wisc.: Liturgical Publications, 1990)
