Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 23, 2011

IT BEGINS AT HOME

For many of us, the idea of dropping all that we have is irresponsible for we are now dedicated to the support of a family, so what does it mean for us to head the call of the Gospel today?

When Mother Teresa won the Nobel Peace Prize, she was asked what we can do to promote peace?  Her answer:  “Go home and love your family”

Recently, I read a book entitled, Whole Community Catechesis by Bill Huebsch.  In that book he spoke about homemaking as a basis for parish life, and wrote that homemaking involves creating a particular atmosphere that bring about a sense of belonging, welcoming, and love.  It doesn’t take a lot of money, but it does take a lot of heart and effort.

Today, we hear of practical suggestions about how our homes can become a basis for parish life and how we can respond to the call of Jesus to drop our usual affairs and announce the Kingdom.
