Second Sunday of Ordinary Time

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD Second Sunday of Ordinary Time 19 January 2020 WORD of the DAY The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. He is the one of whom I said, ‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’ (John 1: 29-30) How shall I live this Word? It is not always easy to recognize the Lord who passes by us as John does: it is He, He is the Lamb of God, He is the Anointed, He is the Chosen One! John recognized Him at first glance because he was waiting for Him with all his heart. He desired His coming; he was sure He would arrive. We perhaps do not have so much desire nor so much faith and we try to recognize Him even if every day we meet Him in the poor who asks for alms on the church door, in the child who wants attention and affection, in the young person who seeks confirmation and direction, in the elderly person who wants to overcome loneliness and sadness...

First Monday of Ordinary Time

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD Monday 13 January 2020 WORD of the DAY As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen. Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Then they abandoned their nets and followed him. He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets. Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him. (Mark 1: 16-20) How shall I live this Word? This scene with the background of the shore of the huge lake similar to an ocean is very beautiful. Still more beautiful is the promptness with which Simon and Andrew accept the invitation to follow Jesus. long ago in time, this way of acting stimulates us today to live the newness of faith that implies continual promptness and decision. Lord, in order to follow what the Gospel proposes to us, it is important that we do not weigh what is to be...

BAPTISM OF JESUS

FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD Sunday 12 January 2020 BAPTISM OF JESUS WORD of the DAY I, the Lord, have called you for justice, I have grasped you by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness. (Isaiah:42: 6-7) How shall I live this Word? Power and life is the Word of the Prophet, as though it had just come from His mouth. The Prophet Isaiah, a very authoritative figure of the Old Testament, is still very timely because today, every person is called to justice above all. Certainly, everything is important: help, understanding, compassion. However, what supports the whole structure of good works is ‘Justice. This goes beyond all other virtues, even charity, because when we exercise charity, justice is always brought into play. All lack of charity comes from those whose hearts are drowning in the black waters of injustice. We have known people who are exteriorly impeccable but are unjust in work or in other relationships, for example, a husband towards his...
