FAITH BOOK

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time (A) January 26, 2020

Isaiah 8: 23-9:3; Psalm 27; I Corinthians 1: 10-13; Matthew 4: 12-23

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:

 

Jesus said to [Peter and Andrew]

"Come after me and I will make you fishers of people."

At once they left their nets and followed him.

 

Reflection:

 

Jesus’ "call" means a choice. The call started in Baptism, but comes anew again and again. To answer requires severing old ways of thinking and acting; putting aside our self-focused values and taking on a gospel way of seeing ourselves and our world.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Is Jesus inviting me to make some serious changes in my life?

  • What are they and when shall I start making them?
