Third Sunday in Ordinary Time: Weekend of January 21 & 22

In today’s gospel we hear Jesus calling Peter, Andrew, James
and John to follow him. Following Jesus was a difficult
journey for these first disciples. It is difficult for us today.
Jesus wants to teach us his way of thinking, acting and
encountering the world. But it is not easy for us to embrace
his teaching. Good stewards of Jesus’ teachings realize
they are on a spiritual journey, and must learn from their
experiences of being open and resistant to the gospel. They
realize the need to be liberated from those actions that keep
them from enjoy¬ing a closer friendship with Jesus. What is
it in our lives that we need to reform? What keeps us from
revealing God’s glory to others?
