Radical Christianity [Sunday Homily, January 21, 2018]

Added 19 January 2018 by Bishop Robert Barron

When Christianity is reduced to deism or moralism, we turn the Gospel into a faint echo of the surrounding culture. But today's readings propose something much more substantive than spiritual bromides or ethical directives. They suggest a new world breaking into the old.

Bishop Barron Homily for January 21, 2018
Third Sunday in Ordinary Time [Year B]

Mass Readings:
Reading 1 - Jonah 3:1-5, 10
Psalm - Psalm 25:4-9
Reading 2 - 1 Corinthians 7:29-31
Gospel - Mark 1:14-20

Reading 2 [1 Cor 7:29-31]
I tell you, brothers and sisters, the time is running out.
From now on, let those having wives act as not having them,
those weeping as not weeping,
those rejoicing as not rejoicing,
those buying as not owning,
those using the world as not using it fully.
For the world in its present form is passing away.
