About Today Readings

Week III Psalter. 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time. 

Jonah 3:1-5, 10. Psalm 24(25):4-9. 1 Corinthians 7:29-31. Mark 1:14-20.

Teach me your ways, O Lord—Psalm 24(25):4-9.

The three readings have much in common. 

First, there is a sense of urgency. Do it now; do not delay; time is running out.

Second, a turning away from sin and a turning to God – an about turn, a conversion.

Third, a new way of life, a program of reform. As we begin a new year, let us ask ourselves, Am I just drifting? Do I pray from my heart? Or do I just go through the actions of being committed to God?

Am I superficial? What does my program of reform entail?

We pray for a real commitment to God, and to let Jesus rule our life. Teach me your ways, O Lord.
