FAITH BOOK

SECOND SUNDAY (B) January 17, 2021

I Sam 3: 3b-10, 19; Ps. 40: 2-4, 7-10; I Cor. 6: 13c-15a, 17-20; John 1: 35-42

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 1 Samuel reading:


When Samuel went to sleep in his place,
the Lord came and revealed his presence,
calling out as before, “Samuel, Samuel.”

Reflection:


Samuel did not receive any dramatic notice to be God’s prophet. Instead, he heard a voice in the middle of the night that awakened him from sleep and his safe environment -- and reset his life.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Is God calling me, in the midst of my daily routine, to a new task – large or small – in God’s service?

  • How is God’s Word stretching me and calling for a response?

  • What might that response be?
