Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him
and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the
sin of the world.” (John 1: 29)
At last the promise, made to Abraham when God
commanded him to leave his home, his country, and his
kin, was fulfilled. The Messiah who would bring blessings
to all mankind had arrived. Eighteen hundred years of
expectation had at last come to an end. During these long
years of waiting, God had, through his prophets and
through his prophetic actions, renewed hope in the hearts
of his Chosen People. These prophecies and prophetic
actions had given indication that the expected one would
be someone very close to God, someone who was more
than a mere man. Yet, who among the Chosen People
could ever have thought that the "Promised One" would
be the very Son of God in human nature?
