January 31-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
All were amazed and asked one another, “What is this? A new teaching with authority. He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him.” -Mk 1:27
Today is the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Our #QOTD is from today's Gospel reading.
A blessed Sunday, Espians! See you later at the 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM masses!
WORDS OF THE HOLY FATHER
The power of Jesus confirms the authority of His teaching. He does not just speak with words, but he takes action. In this way, He manifests God’s plan with words and with the power of His deeds. In the Gospel in fact, we see that in His earthly mission, Jesus reveals the love of God both through preaching and through countless gestures of attention and aid to the sick, the needy, children and sinners. Jesus is our Teacher, powerful in word and deed. Jesus imparts to us all the light that illuminates the sometimes dark paths of our lives. He also transmits to us the necessary strength to overcome difficulties, trials and temptations. Let us consider what a great grace it is for us to have known this God who is so powerful and so good! A teacher and a friend who shows us the path and takes care of us especially when we are in need. (Angelus, 28 January 2018)
