Homilies: 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

My homily for the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C, as preached during the live-streamed 9.30am Mass from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings proclaimed were Isaiah 62:1-5; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11; John 2:1-11. Today’s Psalm is Psalm 95: “Proclaim his marvellous deeds to all the nations”.

“In turning water into wine, Jesus reveals himself to be ‘Bridegroom of Israel’ as prophesied by Isaiah, as the fulfilment of God’s promise to God’s people. We are called to joyfully celebrate God’s graciousness, and live that joy in the world so that all might have life in its fullness.”
