We are now into the First Week of Ordinary Time. There is a 2 year reading cycle (Year 1 and 2). the Gospels stay the same; the other readings are what changes. We always start with the beginning of Jesus’ ministry as told by Mark, then by Matthew, and finally by Luke. We today hear from Jesus first full day on the job. When He spoke the people were “astonished… for He taught them as one having authority.” He speaks today to us as well with that same authority through Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. Do we listen to what He has to teach us?
