5TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
FEBRUARY 8, 2015
SATURDAY
4:00 PM
Jesus was starting to become very popular,
at least with the ordinary people. They had seen
how he had cured the sick and cast out demons.
The gospel has one unusual sentence about those
demons: Jesus did not let them speak “because they
knew who he was.” (Mk 1:34) Apparently, the demons would have identified him as the Son of God.
Jesus knew the people would not understand this
and try to proclaim him as their king. Jesus had no
intention of living as a worldly king, in comfort
and riches. In fact, he came to free people from
needing wealth and power.
Popularity and wealth do not interest St. Paul, either. When he preaches the gospel, the good news
of Christ’s resurrection (and ours), he needs no other recompense. (1 Cor 9:18) All he wants is to
share eternal life. He specifically refuses to be paid
for his preaching, to show that he will be rewarded
by Christ.
So what do you hope for; what is your goal
in life? Do you only feel secure when you have
saved enough money and invested it wisely? Do
you need other people to make you happy? Or at
least a few hundred Facebook friends? Or are you
like Job in the first reading: having no hope of escaping a life of drudgery? He eventually found that
only by trusting God can anyone be happy, even
when things go wrong.
We can follow Paul’s example of love for
all people no matter who they are. Paul’s love was
not to make others like him. He genuinely wanted
to bring the good news to them: by his love for
them, Paul showed that God loves them even more.
He knew the gospel requires a change of heart, so
his love for others helped them to be more open to
change. Let us ask the Lord to fill us with his love,
so that we can help each other to hear the good
news.
