For 23 February 2022, Wednesday of week 7 in Ordinary Time, based on Mark 9:38-40
John said to Jesus, â€˜Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.â€™ But Jesus said, â€˜Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterwards to speak evil of me. Whoever is not against us is for us.
