Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

In Mark’s gospel this Sunday we see people spellbound by Christ’s teachings because He taught with authority; we see demons obey His command because He was the Holy One of God.

Jesus speaks with full authority because it was given to Him by His Father.  He speaks nothing but the truth.  Through His words, He leads us to freedom.  He is the source of our fulfillment.  Jesus comes to teach us with full authority and power.

Pray that we may not harden our hearts and stifle His voice.  Pray that we may listen to His words and not to the lies of the false prophets of today.

God Bless
