Homilies: 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) as preached at the 5.30pm Saturday evening Mass at Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were Nehemiah 8:2-6, 8-10; 1 Corinthians 12:12-30; Luke 1:1-4, 4:14-21.

“Ten words were all that Jesus spoke after reading in the Nazareth Synagogue. There was no need to say anything more: all that was promised by God is found in the Word of God, and it has been fulfilled. Our task is to do exactly the same because we have encountered the living Word of God, Jesus Christ.”
