Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 19, 2014

AN APOSTLE WITH A CONSCIENCE

In our readings today, we have three different servants:  the Suffering Servant in Isaiah, Paul himself in our Letter to the Corinthians; and John the Baptist in the Gospel.

But if we are to understand these servants and our readings today, we have to first go back to last week.  Because it is with our Baptism that our own call to service begins.

We are called to be an Apostle, which is quite different than being a Disciple.  To understand the difference, we must consider the three servants we hear about today.

CLICK HERE for the readings of the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time (Isaiah 49:3, 5-6; Psalm 40; 1 Corinthians 1:1-3; John 1:29-34).
