Second Sunday in Ordinary Time: Here is the Lamb of God…

January 16, 2011 | Author: | Posted in 2, S, Sunday Masses

Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Today is the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Please find today’s Sunday Mass Readings below.

May all the earth give you worship and praise, and break into song of your name, O God, Most High.

First Reading

Through Israel the Lord will show forth glory and splendour. Israel is to be a light for all nations whereby salvation will come to all people.

Isaiah 49: 3, 5 – 6
3 And he said to me, “You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”
5 And now the LORD says, who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him, and that Israel might be gathered to him, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD, and my God has become my strength —
6 he says: “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved of Israel; I will give you as a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”

Responsorial Psalm

Psalms 40: 2, 4, 7 – 10
2 He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.
4 Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after false gods!
7 Then I said, “Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;
8 I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart.”
9 I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou knowest, O LORD.
10 I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of thy faithfulness and thy salvation; I have not concealed thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.

Second Reading

Paul and Sosthenes greet the people at Corinth. They are to be a holy people as are all who call on the name of Jesus, acknowledging him as Lord.

1 Corinthians 1: 1 – 3
1 Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and our brother Sos’thenes,
2 To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours:
3 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Gospel Reading

John the Baptist recognized Jesus: the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. This is God’s chosen one upon whom the Spirit descended and came to rest.

John 1: 29 – 34
29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
30 This is he of whom I said, `After me comes a man who ranks before me, for he was before me.’
31 I myself did not know him; but for this I came baptizing with water, that he might be revealed to Israel.”
32 And John bore witness, “I saw the Spirit descend as a dove from heaven, and it remained on him.
33 I myself did not know him; but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, `He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’
34 And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God.”

Listen in to the sermon…

Listen to Fr. Robert Barron’s latest sermon on Paul’s Opening Words to the Corinthians

In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, he highlights the beauty of baptism and how it sweeps the baptized person into God’s great theo-drama. God calls us out of the world of our narrow egos to partake in his redeeming plan of love of which the Church is the vehicle. Follow Christ, and peace will be given to you.
