Bulletin Shorts for the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 31 January 2021  

Deuteronomy 18:15-20.  Psalm 95:1-2, 6-7, 7-9.  1 Corinthians 7:32-35.  Mark 1:21-28.  

Teaching with Authority.  Jesus begins his ministry with us this liturgical year doing two things.  He is teaching with authority – like no other.  And his teaching spills into action for the benefit of another – mercy at work.  

  • How is Jesus astonishing me by what he teaches?  
  • How am I listening for his words, his call, his teaching?  
  • How is my listening spilling out into mercy thoughts, mercy action, mercy works?
