Reflection from Fr. Taylor: February 4, 2018, 5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Job 7:1-4, 6-7    1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23    Mark 1:29-39

One of the big challenges we have today in the church is that there is more recognition that we are called to be evangelizers showing others how Jesus operates in our life. It’s not so much a thing of winning converts, but in sharing our faith with others.

It does not take a lot of education and talent to be able to evangelize. We all have good news to tell, and we all have great stories on how God has made changes in our lives. Others need to hear it. This is especially true today when there is so much hatred, bigotry, and people seeing things only for themselves. We cannot be as Paul says, “be all things to all people,” but we can learn from others, as well as teach others.

Since we are getting close to the Lenten Season, maybe this is one thing to keep in mind,  how the Lord is using us to teach and share the good news that we have. The Gospel tells us that Jesus was indeed a healer, but He wasn’t just healing physically. He was healing spiritually as well. We are healers of one another. So much good in this world can happen if we realize this and put it into practice.
