3rd SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME -C- January 27, 2019

Nehemiah 8: 2-4a, 5-6, 8-10; Psalm 19; 1 Cor 12: 12-30; Luke 1: 1-4, 4: 14-21

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:

Jesus unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me....

God has sent me to proclaim....

A year acceptable to the Lord."


Jesus tells his hearers, "Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing." Luke is reminding us we don't have to wait for some future time and place for God to come to set us free, it is happening "Today." The One anointed with the Spirit enables us now to be in right relationship with God and one another.

So, we ask ourselves:

  • Where in my life do, I not feel free from fear, guilt, the past, etc.?

  • In faith, can I embrace the truth of Christ’s words for me today: he has come to proclaim liberty?
