THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

January 22, 2017

 

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             Isaiah 9.1-4

Responsorial Psalm:             The Lord is my light and my salvation.

Reading II                            1 Corinthians 1.10-13, 17-18

Gospel:                                Matthew 4.12-23

 

·         Faith is born in us from others and for others. It is not a matter of me and God, me and Jesus, or just me –and God inside me. Jesus called his apostles in community and the same with us: religion is to be personal and not private; personal and communal.  We light the candle of faith for each other.

·         Let me pray for all those who are co-workers in the gospel-field of Jesus and give thanks for those who have faith.

The Archbishop’s Monthly Prayer Intentions January 2017

 

"That all Christians faithful to the teachings of the Lord, commit themselves, through prayer and charity, join forces in meeting the challenges faced by today’s humanity. ".

 

Social Reflection: The current challenges humanity face are large and diverse. We are confronted to promote justice, peace and respect for the creation so that all may have good living conditions? But the task seems unrealistic and even impossible. We will have to look for partners and join forces. In great catastrophes, we experience solidarity. The Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Quebec, through the Church and Society Council, produced a document to initiates a reflection process on the necessity and demands of solidarity

 

Answering our Faith: As Christians we have an important role to play in making solidarity a beacon of hope for all mankind. We draw from the Gospel, the Word of Life that inspires and motivates our actions in order to be like Jesus in our relationships. Jesus did say, "I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." John 10, verse 10. The unity of Christians can only strengthen this solidarity to brave the challenges that mankind is facing while safeguarding its environment in order to support human life.

 

Questioning ourselves: Sunday, January 22, 2017: To promote Christian unity, what can I say, what can I do to be a testimony of God’s love?
