Third Week of Ordinary Time
The Third Sunday of Ordinary Time brings us to a cycle of Matthew's gospels that will be
used during most Sundays of Ordinary Time this year. This week we see the call of the
first disciples as Jesus stops Andrew and his brother, Peter on the beach. “'Come after
me, and I will make you fishers of men'. At once they left their nets and followed him.”
Tuesday is the Memorial of Saint Thomas Aquinas, priest and  doctor of the Church.
Friday is the Memorial of Saint John Bosco.
This is the third week of readings from Samuel, this week from the Second Book of
Samuel. A young David is anointed King of Israel and with his army, captures the city of
Zion. In the festivities that followed, Samuel offers the delightful image of a joyful David at
the Ark of the Covenant, “dancing before the LORD with abandon ... with shouts of joy and
to the sound of the horn.” The Lord tells David, “I will raise up your heir after you, sprung
from your loins, and I will make his Kingdom firm.” David sees Bathsheba, the beautiful
wife of Uriah the Hittite and after having relations with her, he orders Uriah to the front of a
battle where he is killed. Nathan the prophet confronts David, who repents.
In Mark's Gospel this week, we have many familiar stories. The scribes, hearing of his
many healings, accuse Jesus of being possessed by Satan. He replies that a house is
divided against itself cannot stand. Mary and other relatives arrive at a home where Jesus
is teaching, but Jesus does not go to them, saying, “Whoever does the will of God is my
brother and sister and mother.” He tells the parable of the sower and the seeds which fall
on fertile ground and rocky soil. “Those sown on rich soil are the ones who hear the word
and accept it and bear fruit thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.” He encourages his
disciples not to hide their light “under a bushel basket” and tells the story of the mustard
seed, the tiniest seed which grows into one of the largest bushes. In Saturday's gospel
the apostles are frightened on a boat in a storm until Jesus awakens to calm the wind
and seas.
On the Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time, we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of the
Lord. It celebrates Mary and Joseph bringing their baby, Jesus, to the temple and their
remarkable encounters with both Simeon and Anna. Simeon tells them, “Behold, this
child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel," while Anna "gave thanks to God
and spoke about the child to all who were awaiting the redemption of
Jerusalem."                  


Fourth Week of Ordinary Time

On the Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time, we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of the
Lord. It celebrates Mary and Joseph bringing their baby, Jesus, to the temple and their
remarkable encounters with both Simeon and Anna. Simeon tells them, “Behold, this
child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel," while Anna "gave thanks to God
and spoke about the child to all who were awaiting the redemption of Jerusalem."
Wednesday is the Memorial of Saint Agatha, Virgin and Martyr. Thursday we remember
Saint Paul Miki and Companions, Martyrs.
The story of David we have been following for the past two weeks will end with his death
as we conclude the readings from the Book of Samuel. As the narrative moves to the
Book of Kings, David's son Solomon, has succeeded him on the throne and for the next
week, the tale of notable leaders of Israel's history continues to unfold.
In Mark’s Gospel this week, Jesus continues to heal and teach. A man in the Gerasenes
is healed of unclean spirits and wants to stay with Jesus, but Jesus tells the man, “Go
home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you.”
The young daughter of a synagogue official is sick and on the way to heal her, as Jesus
stood in a crowd, he felt the power go out of him as a woman with a hemorrhage touched
his cloak. “Your faith has saved you,” he reassures her. To the father he says, “Do not be
afraid; just have faith” and heals the daughter. He teaches in the synagogue in his
hometown “and they took offense at him.”  He was not able to perform miracles there,
because of their lack of faith. Jesus sends his disciples out to preach and heal, telling
them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick. Though the demons know who
Jesus is, Herod thinks he is John the Baptist, whom Herod had beheaded. Jesus
encourages his busy disciples, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a
while.” But as they tried to get away “and saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with
pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them
many things.”
On the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Jesus encourages his disciples to let their light
shine: “Your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify
your heavenly Father.”

Please welcome Fr. Glen Baptiste, from Food for the Poor, and working in Haiti, who will
again, be speaking at all Masses next weekend.  I emailed him earlier this week to prepare,
and this is what he sent back to me:
Yes, I too am looking forward to re-visiting the people I admire so immensely!

We will chat, as time approaches! Please keep the ice and snow away so that I can get to the
two of my ‘favorite’ little communities from Lambert! Tell your communities that I admire them
deeply, and look forward to sharing Eucharist with them again!  -Fr. Glen

From what he shares with us, we will pan on our Lenten stewardship to Haiti.

I will be gone from Tuesday afternoon this week, and returning late on January 31st.  There will be NO services
either Tuesday, January 21 and 28.  There will be communion services at all other regular times and parishes.
