FAITH BOOK

 

FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (B) February 4, 2018

Job 7: 1-4;6-7; I Cor. 9: 16-19; 22-23; Mark 1: 29-39

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told Jesus about her. He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up.

 

Reflection:

 

Jesus is no longer trapped by the limits of time and place. He comes over to us now at this Eucharistic celebration. He extends a hand, as he did for Simon’s mother-in-law, to raise us up from what would press us down and to help us go further on our journey with him.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

  • At this stage of our journey with Christ, how do we experience his hand reaching out to sustain us?

  • Who is the outstretched hand of Christ for us?
