Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time 2018

Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time 2018 

I have been slowly getting sick again the last few days. At the time of writing this, I have read through this weeks readings a few times, and yet cannot come up with a clear though to expand and reflect upon them.

First Reading Deuteronomy 18:15-20
Responsorial Psalm 95:1,2, 6-9 Response 7c,8a
Second Reading 1 Corinthians 7:32-35
Gospel Mark 1:21-28

Both the second reading and the gospel continue directly from last weeks readings. Jesus's first miracle in Mark's account takes place. Paul in the second reading warns about what not to worry about. Paul appears to realize that no matter our station in life we will have worries and anxieties, what he seems concerned about is our being anxious about the right things. And in our first reading Moses warns about prophets, and listening to real ones and the judgement that will fall upon false ones. There is a lot going on in these three readings. 

My prayer for blessings on you this week, may the Lord keep you, and watch over you, may he be a hedge of protection around you. May he set a guard around your intellect, your heart and your spirit. In the name of the Father, and of the Son,and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
