THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
1/25/09 Gospel: mark 1:14-20
“REPENT AND BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL”
By tracking his journeys in the Gospels, someone once concluded that during the years of his ministry Jesus walked 3,125 miles. However, many miles it was, in today’s Gospel, Jesus begins his ministry and calls the first of his disciples to follow him. Our journey has traversed the dimensions of time for 2,000 years. The journey now includes the lives of more than 2 billion Christians, representing one third of the world’s population. And who can count the lives of those followers who have gone before us?
