FOURTH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME - FEBRUARY 1, 2015
Dt 18:15-20; Ps 95; 1 Cor 7:32-35
Gospel: Mk 1:21-28
With the baptism of Jesus the prophecy from our first
reading in Deuteronomy is fulfilled. We are told “to him you
shall listen.” This is our message today. Jesus is beginning his
ministry. He comes first to the Israelites in their synagogue
where “he taught them as one having authority and not as
the scribes.” We see even the unclean spirits obey him. As
we break open the Gospel of Mark we will hear Jesus’ words
as he teaches his disciples and attempts to make the Jewish
leaders understand who he is. We too must listen to him.
“Anyone who has ears to hear ought to hear.” He also told
them “Take care what you hear.” (Mk 4:23-24)

The only reason for my being killed is
that I have taught the doctrine of Christ. I thank God it
is for this reason that I die. I believe that I am telling the
truth before I die. I know you believe me and I want to
say to you all once again: Ask Christ to help you become
happy. I obey Christ. After Christ’s example, I forgive my
persecutors. I do not hate them. I ask God to have pity on
all, and I hope my blood will fall on my fellow men as a
fruitful rain. ~ Saint Paul Miki

Works of Mercy Project
Update
The PSR children and parents have
been so generous in their lunch
packing gifts we have been able to
help out more Neighbors in Need.
Fairbanks School’s program that
provides weekend lunch foods
to children in need within that
district benefited from some of
the collected foods. And we still
have plenty of non-perishable
lunch box food to complete
another 50 lunches on March 9.
Next UP:
St. Valentine Concession
Stand and making Valentine’s
for the elderly. February 9.
From Homeless to Home
In a letter to our parishes, Bishop Campbell
has requested our attention to this
important matter:
This February, our Diocese is rallying
support for the homeless. There has been a
significant increase in homelessness among
Central Ohio citizens. More than 3,000
children were uprooted from their homes
and had to live in a homeless shelter in 2014.
On too many nights, adults are turned away
from shelters that are filled to capacity.
Please visit:
fromhomelesstohome.org for ideas
and ways to help.

Weekly Scripture Challenge~ by Tim Rimmer
As we read the Gospel of Mark this liturgical year, pay attention to how often
Jesus encounters Satan and his soldiers. What is the first action Jesus takes
after being baptized? He confronts Satan in the desert. Why? Because Satan
is sin and death and the force that veils mankind from the Father. Jesus has
come to reconcile us to the Father and to destroy the dominion of Satan. This theme is
echoed in today’s reading when an unclean spirit asks Jesus “Have you come to destroy us?”
