FAITH BOOK

THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME (B) JANUARY 21, 2018

Jonah 3: 1-5, 10; Psalm 25; I Cor 7: 29-31; Mark 1: 14-20

By Jude Siciliano, O.P.

 

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:

 

As Jesus passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother casting their nets into the sea....

Jesus said to them, "Come after me and I will make you fishers of people."

Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.

 

Reflection:

 

We hear Jesus’ invitation, "Come follow me," each day, as life presents us with choices. Shall we forgive when asked? Shall we help someone in need? Shall we buy less for ourselves and give more to the poor? Shall we see the injustice or turn a blind eye? In these, and so many other occasions, we hear the same invitation Jesus made to those fishermen and, like them, we put other considerations aside to follow him.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What recent choices have I made that show my desire to follow Christ?

  • What changes do I have to make in my life to follow him more fully?
