Pastor's Corner

Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

January 20, 2019

In today’s First Reading, Isaiah cries out for justice to shine and dispel the darkness that surrounds his people. These cries are accompanied by the hope in his prayer that one day, God will espouse Israel and crown her with his glory. In today’s Gospel reading of the wedding at Cana, Jesus, accompanied by his mother, performs and indescribable transformation out of love, not justice. With the transformation of water into wine, Saint John reminds us of the shift from the Old to the New Testament. God espouses a new people through his Son by the power of the Holy Spirit, and in the Second Reading, Paul writes that the Holy Spirit bestows gifts upon the faithful, which they, in turn, place at the service of the Church.

This week, ask different community groups to use these texts for reflection, and to examine the transformative impact of serving others.
