Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today’s Gospel features Jesus calling his first disciples. The invitation is welcoming and intriguing: “Come, and you will see.” How are we called by the Lord? The Lord has called us all here today on this Sunday in the middle of January and so we have come together to listen to God’s word and to receive our Lord in the Eucharist.

How is the Lord speaking to us today?

For Reflection . . .

Hearing the story of Samuel’s call, perhaps you’re marveling that he could keep getting back to sleep after being awakened multiple times during the night. That’s the true miracle! But it may be good to think of “sleep” as a metaphor for days lived routinely, without thinking. Every day we wake up, brush our teeth and comb our hair, go to work or school, come home, watch TV, go to bed. Day after day after day. Perhaps once in a while during our drowsiness we receive a gentle nudge: Is there more to my life? Shouldn’t I be doing something more? The Lord’s call may not occur during the night, but we may still be sleeping when it happens. Will it wake us up?

How can I discern the Lord’s call among the many voices in my life? Is there any intermediary I can trust to recognize the Lord’s voice?

Segundo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

El Evangelio de hoy nos presenta a Jesús llamando a sus primeros discípulos. La invitación es cordial e intrigante: “Vengan a ver”. ¿De qué manera nos llama el Señor? El Señor nos ha llamado a todos aquí en este domingo de mediados de enero, para que juntos vengamos a escuchar la palabra de Dios y a recibir a nuestro Señor en la Eucaristía.

¿De qué manera nos está hablando el Señor hoy?

Para Reflexionar . . .

Al oir la historia del llamado de Samuel tal vez te maravilles de que él podía conciliar de Nuevo el sueño después de que lo despertaran varias veces durante la noche. ¡Ése es el verdadero milagro! Pero pudiera sernos ventajoso pensar en “dormir” como una metáfora de los días vividos rutinariamente y sin pensar. Todos los días nos despertamos, nos lavamos los dientes y nos peinamos, vamos al trabajo o a la escuela, regresamos a casa, miramos la tele y nos vamos a la cama. Día tras día, tras día. Tal vez de vez en cuando durante nuestro adormecimiento recibimos un suave codacito: ¿Hay algo más en mi vida? ¿No debería estar hacienda algo más? El llamado de Dios tal vez no ocurra durante la noche, pero podríamos estar durmiendo cuando suceda. ¿Nos despertará?

¿Cómo puedo discerner el llamado de Dios entre tantas voces que hay en mi vida? ¿Hay algún intermediario en quien puedo confiar para reconocer la voz del Señor?

RECEPTION OF HOLY COMMUNION

The safety of all is our utmost concern. Because of this, we are not tired of reminding everyone to observe the safety guidelines. We strongly ask everyone to receive Holy Communion in the hand and must leave their mask on when approaching the priest; after receiving the Sacred Host, move to the side, lower the mask and consume the Sacred Host, then put back the mask and return to your seat.

RECEPCIÓN DE LA SAGRADA COMUNIÓN

La seguridad de todos es primordial. Por eso le recordamos que todos deberán observar las reglas de seguridad. Le rogamos que todos reciban la Sagrada Comunión en la mano. Deberán permanecer con la máscara hasta llegar al frente del sacerdote. Después de aceptar la Hostia Sagrada, moverse para el lado antes de quitar la máscara para consumir la Hostia Sagrada. Inmediatamente, colocar la máscara y regresar a su asiento.


SAFETY IN CHURCH

Face masks are mandatory throughout the Mass. Social distancing is to be kept. Six feet distance is required from one family to the other. Sanitize your hands when you enter and exit the Church.
