Do you want to be changed?
Can you identify one thing in your life that has changed as a result of encountering the Word of God?
In 2019, Pope Francis established the 3rd Sunday of Ordinary time to be “the Sunday of the Word of God.” With this focus in mind, we see very clearly in this Sunday’s readings, the potential that encountering God’s word has to change people’s lives.
The people of Nineveh believed and repented, the fishermen left their nets, and St. Paul invites the Christians in Corinth to see their entire life from a new perspective. Truly being open and receptive to the Word of God has the power to change us forever. Do you want to be changed? When was the last time you were really open to God’s Word?
