Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

February 13, 2012

PEOPLE OF INFLUENCE

This Sunday, Paul and Jesus offer us clear methods on how we can be people of greater influence.  Through the Corinthians, Paul gives us a very clear list of instructions as to how we can better spread the Gospel with our lives.

In the Gospel, Jesus is moved with pity and stretches out his hand to heal the paralytic.  However, in doing so, he breaks through yet another societal custom which finds its basis in our first reading from Leviticus.

The challenge is to us is very simple, but not easy to follow:  influence is not only deeply personal, it often requires that we make ourselves vulnerable and get a little dirty in order to make a difference.
