May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ
enlighten the eyes of our hearts,
that we may know what is the hope
that belongs to our call.
(See Ephesians 1:17-18)
To the one who conscientious about the way he lives according to my laws
and offers me thanksgiving and praise
I will show my salvation, says the Lord
(See Psalm 50:23)
Our Mass schedule for this Lord’s Day is the regular one: 5p, 7:30a, 9:30a, 11:30a
Due to the severe weather we trust that you will use your common sense and judge whether a trip to church would present a danger in driving and walking. God cares about your health of body as well as your health of soul.
Our parking lot and the walkways have been cleared. The sunshine makes it feel warmer than expected.
Hope that all is well and we shall see you to worship the Lord!
To those who complained that Jesus was fraternizing with tax collectors and sinners, he said:
Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.
I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.
Today in Jesus
A great prophet has arisen in our midst
and God has visited his people.
Jesus preached the Gospel of the Kingdom
and cured every disease among the people.
A leper came to him and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.”
Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand,
touched the leper, and said to him,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
When Samuel went to sleep in his place,
the LORD came and revealed his presence,
calling out as before, “Samuel, Samuel!”
Samuel answered, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”
Receive the word of God, not as the word of men,
but as it truly is, the word of God.
FEAST OF THE BAPTISM OF THE LORD
I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice,
I have grasped you by the hand;
I formed you, and set you
as a covenant of 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.
The magi opened their treasures
and offered the new-born King
gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
