Third Sunday Ordinary Time
Word From the Pastor
Dear Parishioners,Give to Live
We often find ourselves grumbling about this world, or find ways to prevent ourselves from working to make the world a better place, or helping others. We get caught up in our own problems and don’t have the time or emotional energy to help others.

We pray for the living and deceased members of our armed forces:
The first half of Mark’s Gospel (1:1-8:26) describes Jesus’ ministry of healing and preaching in Galilee. Jesus begins his preaching by calling on people to repent and embrace the Good News. For Mark, ‘believe in the Gospel’ meant ‘believe in the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ.’ Repentance is one of the main themes of the readings. The First Reading relates how the preaching of Jonah met with an immediate response in the pagan city of Nineveh. The story shows the possibility of a heathen city repenting and turning to God. It also shows the mercy and forgiveness of God.
If the Ninevites responded so fully to the preaching of Jonah, how much more fully should we respond to the preaching of Jesus? The Gospel shows the prompt response of the first disciples to his call to follow him. Even though we can’t share Paul’s belief that the Second Coming of Christ is imminent, he still has an important message for us, namely, that this world is not the be-all and the end-all. We are destined for the next world. This should profoundly affect the way we live in this world.
