LATEST DIOCESE/COUNTY COMPLIANCE
In response to the latest COVID resurgence, and omicron variant, the California Department of Public Health has announced that effective Wednesday December 15th, all persons must wear masks indoors, regardless of their vaccination status. The announcement indicated this will be in force at least until January 15, 2022.
JANUARY 23, 2022 - THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
1st Reading: Nehemiah 8:2-4,5-6,8-10
2nd Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:12-30
Gospel: Luke 1:1-4, 4:14-21
In today's Gospel, Jesus proclaimed His message of justice and freedom when He read from Isaiah: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.” This same message of justice and freedom needs to be proclaimed again and again, more so, in this our present day and time.
Persecution and martyrdom have always been, and will always be a part of discipleship. If we never go through
persecution, maybe it is because we are not proclaiming the true Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. And remember,
persecution purifies us, clears our vision and strengthens our mission.
Are we living an unhappy life? Are we a captive and a prisoner inside and out? Are we in darkness? Are we going through oppressions of any kind? Are we living a life that is not acceptable to God? If our answer is YES to all of the questions above, read again the passage from Isaiah in today's Gospel, and know that it is the Spirit of the Lord that will change us and the life we are living. May the Spirit of the Lord be with us all!
Prayer: Lord, set us free by your Spirit from things, people and places that imprison us. Amen
