3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time There are times in our lives when we may be called to pitch in, to join others in a task, and we’d rather not be asked. We’re comfortable with the status quo, or we might not get along with some of the people involved, or we’re being stretched beyond what we think are our limits. Should we let our fear and reluctance decide for us? Today’s readings say no! Both the first reading and the Gospel speak of people being dawn from darkness to light, from death to life. what an apt image for the call of discipleship – Jesus calling his first followers from the darkness of their own lives into the light of discipleship in the kingdom. James and John overcame any fear or reluctance and trusted that God would give them whatever they needed to follow Jesus. In the second reading, St. Paul urges us to put aside our differences and work collectively for the common good; otherwise, we will not be imitating Christ who is the center of our existence. This is a challenging reminder to us in this Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, for all Christians to be Faithful to our baptismal vocation to proclaim the gospel with one voice, following Jesus without fear or reluctance. May we all answer yes when Jesus says, “Come, follow me.” Installation of the CWL 2023 Executive will take place at the end of Mass on Sunday, January 29. CWL members are encouraged to attend this Mass to show their support and appreciation for our executive. CWL 2022 Annual Report copies are available on the CWL shelf at the main entrance. CWL Memberships can be submitted for one more week. Forms are available at both entrances. Moose Jaw Right To Life We need you in the Parish Directory.

Since January 28, 1988, when the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the existing abortion law, Parliament has never been successful in passing a new law. There has been no protection for the unborn at any stage of development up to birth. Many women were and still are led to believe that the conceived baby is “just a blob of tissue” With the advance of science and technology, photos of babies in the womb depict fingernails and toenails perfectly formed at just twelve weeks after conception. Next Sunday, January 29, we will have people at the entrances of the church passing out these wallet cards. Please talk about the miracle of life that begins in the womb with your family.
