Today, we are firmly, liturgically, in Ordinary Time, Week 7. The Gospel returns to Mark, the primary Gospel on Sundays in Year B. The Gospels for weekdays all follow this pattern: the public life of Jesus unfolds as told by each of the Synoptic Gospel writers staring with Mark, then Matthew, then Luke. For example. we continue with Mark through Week 9. Then, in Week 10, we go to the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry as told by Matthew. Matthew will continue through Week 21, then Luke picks up in Week 22 through the end of the Liturgical Year.
