5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on

Originally delivered on February 10, 1991

Readings: Job 7:1-4, 6-7; Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23; Mark 1:29-39

In the first reading, Job represents our hopelessness.  In the Gospel, however, Jesus sees people’s illnesses and heals them.  Indeed, He brings us hope.  We are therefore to called to come out of our despair and to see the possibilities that make us glad, even in the midst of our pain and misery. We are being called to bring the hope of Jesus in our world.
