Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

 Is. 49: 3, 5-6 | Ps.40:2, 4, 7-10 | 1Cor. 1:1-3 | John 1:29-34

God tells Israel through the prophet Isaiah that not only has Israel been favored from the moment of conception, but that Israel will become a great nation and will be a light to them so that they might see God’s salvation.  John the Baptist tells the people that he is not the Messiah but that God sent him to prepare for the coming of the Messiah.  John knows that Jesus is the One who has been sent to redeem the world.  John knows this because he was told that the One on whom the Spirit rested, was the Messiah.  John has been sent to be a light to the nations and to proclaim that the Real Light is Jesus.

We are called to proclaim Jesus to all with whom we come in contact.  We are called to bring the peace, joy, and love of Christ to others.  We can do this through the gifts we receive in prayer.  Prayer is the central ingredient for all that we are called to do.  Take time to pray today.  Allow God the time to touch your heart and make you strong to proclaim the Good News to all
