FAITH BOOK

2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (A) January 19, 2020

Isaiah 49: 3, 5-6; Psalm 40; 1 Corinthians 1: 1-3; John 1:29-34

By Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said:

"Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away

The sin of the world.

 

Reflection:

 

The Baptist had a keen sense of having been called. But then he had to work until he got the next sign; the one indicating Jesus’ identity. Like the Magi, and like us, he journeyed without knowing the end results of his labors. He anticipated that God would not leave him but would be there for him, at the appropriate time, to reveal the next step to take.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What would we identify as the "sin of the world?"

  • How do we think Jesus takes it away?
