Jonah 3:1 – 5, 10

This Sunday, we will hear from the Book of Jonah. The passage was clearly chosen to prepare us for the Gospel, as we shall see.  We only hear from this book once every three years on Sunday – that is, this Sunday – so let’s spend some time understanding its genre.  It is listed as a prophetic book, but is unique among the prophets for two reasons: 1) it is not a collection of oracles, but a narrative; and 2) Jonah’s behavior is the opposite of […]

1 Samuel 3:3b-10, 19

As we return to Ordinary Time, time that is ordered for our salvation, this Sunday we will hear about the calling of Samuel to become a prophet.  You may recall the birth of Samuel to Hannah, who had been sterile (cf. 1 Sm 1:1-28).  Shortly after his birth, Hannah dedicated Samuel to God by bringing him to the temple.  We begin the season of Ordinary Time with a classic vocation narrative. For those who know the story of his early life, Samuel’s call is not much of […]

Isaiah 60: 1 – 6

This Sunday, we will hear again from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah.  The section we will hear is from the 60th chapter, so we know that it is from trito-Isaiah, which comes from the time when the people have returned from the Babylonian exile.  Whereas Isaiah’s prophecy is filled with warnings of impending doom, here we will hear a message of hope.  Those of you who have the Catholic Study Bible will want to check the footnote on these verses:  The Church makes use of […]
