Bulletin Shorts for the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 07 February 2021  

Job 7:1-4, 6-7.  Psalm 147:1-2, 3-4, 5-6.  1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23.  Mark 1:29-39.  

Pursuing Jesus.  After curing Simon’s mother-in-law, Jesus, standing at the door, is teaching, healing, and casting out demons.  Then, leaving at dawn, he goes off alone.  Simon and the boys, pursuing him, find him praying and plead:  “Everyone is looking for you.”  

  • Since I am looking, where will I find Jesus this week?  
  • What teaching of his do I need to hear?  What healing?  
  • Where and when will I make time for praying?
