28th January 2019 Monday 3rd Week of Ordinary Time - St. Thomas Aquinas
Hebrews 9:15,24-28, Mark 3:22-30
"Come, Jesus! Enter into me!"
Jesus was going around healing people and touching the lives of many. Moved constantly by the Holy Spirit, Jesus was doing good deeds of love. By saying that ‘Beelzebul’ was in Jesus, the scribes from Jerusalem were deliberately closing their hearts to recognizing any goodness in Jesus. They refused to see the hand of God in all the works of Jesus. Yet, the simple and humble crowd around Jesus could see the wonders of God through the actions of Jesus and rejoiced in Him.
27th January 2019 Sunday 3rd Week of Ordinary Time
Nehemiah 8:2-6,8-10, 1 Corinthians 12:12-20, Luke 1:1-4, 4:14-21
"Jesus the Bringer of Good News"
“This text is being fulfilled today even as you listen.” Jesus ended by telling His listeners that they needed to wait no more. He was the fulfilment of the Scriptures.
Today, Jesus is with us and shares with us His same Spirit, and we too are sent to be part of the mission to bring God’s love to the people around us. We are called to transmit what we have received from Jesus. Let Jesus’ mission and life bring purpose to us and the essence of who we are. Let us step up and start showing His love to those around us today!
26th January 2019 Saturday 2nd Week of Ordinary Time - Ss. Timothy and Titus
2 Timothy 1:1-8 or Titus 1:1-5, Mark 3:20-21
"A happy fool for Christ"
Was Jesus out of his mind? Yes! He was ‘mad’ with love for God and for His people. He was so ‘mad’ that he dedicated every moment when He was awake to the mission.
