Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

The two disciples who were with John in today’s Gospel did not yet know Jesus.

John knew they sought the Messiah, and he understood his mission to point the way to the Lord. In the first reading, Eli realized that the Lord was calling Samuel and told him how to respond when called. Saint Paul witnessed to the Good News of Jesus to the people in Corinth, and continued to show them how to live as Christian people. John, Eli, and Paul grasped that, as people of faith, we are called to show others the way to the Lord. Who helps you be attentive to God’s presence and to respond in faith? To whom are you called to witness, to show the way to the Lord?

Today’s Readings: 1 Sm 3:3b–10, 19; Ps 40:2, 4, 7–8, 8–9, 10; 1 Cor 6:13c–15a, 17–20; Jn 1:35–42
