Fr. George’s Weekly Message:
Ordinary Time of the Year B

With the celebration of Epiphany, the Christmas season comes to an end, and the Ordinary Time Season of the Church’s liturgical year begins. The ordinary time, as the name sug-gests, is a time that we go about our ordinary and daily activities. Living out our various vocations, professions, or careers – as priests, parents, children, husband, wife, nurses, doctors, teachers, farmers, heads of corporations or businesses, employers or employees, and so on. The question is, how do we live out these in the light of the gospel of Christ?
We all expect that the seeds we sow in our daily life bear fruits. This is our hope, and this is what the ordinary time represents – HOPE. Hope, not just in our daily material well-being, but especially in our spiritual life. As a mother, father, son, daughter, priest, employer, em-ployee, student, teacher – how do I allow the truth of the gospel and teachings of Christ influence all that I do such that it would bring about the betterment of humanity, my happi-ness, joy, and to the Glory of God?
During this season, we equally appreciate the various talents and gifts that God has given us. God has endowed each one of us certain peculiar gifts, and God expects that we become productive with these gifts. And as we know, gifts are not gifts until they are used for the benefit of others and humanity. It is a time therefore to discover, re-discover, nurtured and make use of these our individual talents and gifts. The more we make use of our gifts and talents, they become unique to us in a proficient and obvious way that it exudes joy in us and radiates to others. We become eager to use our gifts to help others and build up the community, just as Jesus uses who he is to effect and affect peoples’ lives. Jesus went about “doing good and healing all those oppressed by the devil” (Acts 10:38).
As we follow and reflect on the readings of this period (about 34 Sundays/weeks of the year) that narrate the life of Christ Jesus and his teachings and deed, let us allow them to influence our life and faith journey.
Announcement
We thank Frs. Christian and Mathew of Our Lady of Consolata Parish, Cass City, for their generosity and kindness in presiding over our weekend Masses and providing other sacra-mental needs while I was away. I understand that the weather was not too good, and the rectory was not in good shape, yet they persevered in their assistance. Thanks to all who made their services easier by being helpful with their needs. God bless them and bless you all.
