Gospel reading Mark 1:14-20

Third Sunday of Ordinary - January 25, 2015

After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen.

Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Then they abandoned their nets and followed him. He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets. Then he called them.

So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him.

Dear Parishioners,

Give to Live

We often find ourselves grumbling about this world, or find ways to prevent ourselves from working to make the world a better place, or helping others. We get caught up in our own problems and don’t have the time or emotional energy to help others.

We become comfortable in our wealth or happiness and do not pursue awareness of the problems of others. We feel helpless and discouraged, certain that our small part won’t make a difference.

We are meant to enjoy the blessings God gives us, but we cannot forget that we are blessed to be a blessing. Someone once observed “The man who thinks he can and the man who thinks he cannot are both right.” We have a choice. Let us choose to think positively: “it can be done.”

Original sin 1

January 22, 2015

The Church's teaching on the transmission of original sin was articulated more precisely in the fifth century, especially under the impulses of St. Augustine's reflections against Pelagianism, and in the 16th century, in opposition to the Protestant Reformation.

Pelagius held that man could, by the natural power of free will and without the necessary help of God's grace, lead a morally good life; he thus reduced the influence of Adam's fault to bad example.

The first Protestant reformers, on the contrary, taught that original sin has radically perverted man and destroyed his freedom; they identified the sin inherited by each man with the tendency to evil (concupiscentia), which would be insurmountable. The Church pronounced on the meaning of the data of Revelation on original sin especially at the second Council of Orange (529) and at the Council of Trent (1546).
