Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 15, 2012


There is a very clear message in our readings this Sunday:  we only come to know hope and the things of God through the encounter with a person – the person of Christ, with whom we encounter through our family and friends.

In our lives today, we are the Eli to Samuel; the John to Andrew; and the Andrew to Simon Peter.

Of course, most of us doubt our ability our credentials to perform this role.  Most of us feel that we are too sinful and too unfamiliar with God and God’s ways to ever show God to others; and so we must learn to be comfortable with ourselves as saints and sinners.
