Re-examine Your Ways01-24-2021Fr. Arul Doss
Dear People of God,
I would like to write some reflections on the basis of this third Sunday’s readings as usually. These readings encourage us to re-examine and change our ways in order to avoid the imminent wrath of God, and to enjoy his mercy. They equally remind us of its urgency (in relation to time), which is one theme that runs through and unifies the three readings of this Sunday.
In today's first reading Jonah laments, “Only forty days, and Nineveh will be destroyed”, Paul reminds us in today's second reading that: “Our time is growing short”, while Jesus Christ proclaims in today's: “The time has come…the kingdom of God is close at hand.” So, we must not hold tenaciously to this passing world. Finally, it encourages us to collaborate with Jesus as: “Fishers of Men,” in order to transform and save our world.READ MORE
