Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

"National Catholic Schools Week 2015"

Most Rev. Mitchell T. Rozanski
Bishop of Springfield

Now that Ordinary Time is under way, we will be hearing from Mark's Gospel for the most of the year. So this week, we hear his version of the call of the disciples. The disciples are at their daily task, fishing, when Jesus approaches them. As we gather to pray today, it might be good to reflect on how God approaches us in our own daily tasks. Let us pray for the grace to be open to God's presence in even the smallest things we do.
THE THEME FOR NATIONAL CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK 2015 is once again "Catholic School Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service" The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education. First, schools are communities--small communities in their own right, but also members of the larger communities of parish, town, state and nation. Secondly, Catholic schools exist to pass on knowledge--not just the practical knowledge of reading, writing, arithmetic and so on, but also knowledge of God and truth. Finally, Catholic schools are communities of service, places where helping one another and aiding the needy are the modus operandi, the normal way of living life.

Scripture Reference:
First Reading: Jonah 3: 1-5, 10
Responsorial Psalm 25
Teach me your ways, O Lord.
Second reading: 1 Corinthians 7: 29-31
Gospel: Mark 1: 14-20
