Message from Fr. Ivan

Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

THE MORE EXCELLENT WAY!

The author of the third Gospel account, St. Luke, was a Gentile and a learned physician who painstakingly compiled and organized the account of the life and ministry of Jesus for the benefit of the nonJew who loves God (Lk. 1:1). The mission of the Messiah was for the redemption of all, not some. Luke’s account of Jesus’ public ministry begins with the account of His homecoming experience, which can be captured best by the saying: “bittersweet.” The initial reaction is all praise, but quickly turns sour upon hearing the truth (Lk. 4:21-30). The truth, Jesus proclaims, is that all is not well, and that God’s message is for all who care to listen and change their lives. The first reading taken from the prophet Jeremiah, echoes the Gospel in showcasing the hardships of the prophetic ministry. But the work must go on; the Gospel must be preached whether it is convenient or not. The problems are the same for the Jew and the non-Jew: hunger, sickness, rejection and prejudice are highlighted in the Gospel as the criteria for God’s visit and intervention in man’s affairs. Because of them, our relationship with God and His message are failing to take root. St. Paul, through his letter to the Corinthians proposes the solution: “a more excellent way” (1 Cor 12). to resolve all these: the way of love. For God is love and he who abides in love abides in God and God in him (1 John 4:16).
Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever.
