Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

1st book of Samuel


Samuel was sleeping in the temple of the LORD where the ark of God was.
The LORD called to Samuel, who answered, "Here I am."
He ran to Eli and said, "Here I am. You called me." "I did not call you," Eli said. "Go back to sleep." So he went back to sleep.
Again the LORD called Samuel, who rose and went to Eli. "Here I am," he said. "You called me." But he answered, "I did not call you, my son. Go back to sleep."
At that time Samuel was not familiar with the LORD, because the LORD had not revealed anything to him as yet.
The LORD called Samuel again, for the third time. Getting up and going to Eli, he said, "Here I am. You called me." Then Eli understood that the LORD was calling the youth.
So he said to Samuel, "Go to sleep, and if you are called, reply, 'Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.'" When Samuel went to sleep in his place,
the LORD came and revealed his presence, calling out as before, "Samuel, Samuel!" Samuel answered, "Speak, for your servant is listening."
Samuel grew up, and the LORD was with him, not permitting any word of his to be without effect.



I have waited, waited for the LORD,
and he stooped toward me and heard my cry.
And he put a new song into my mouth,
a hymn to our God.
Sacrifice or oblation you wished not,
but ears open to obedience you gave me.
Burnt offerings or sin-offerings you sought not;
then said I, “Behold I come.”
“In the written scroll it is prescribed for me,
To do your will, O my God, is my delight,
and your law is within my heart!”
I announced your justice in the vast assembly;
I did not restrain my lips, as you, O LORD, know.

First Letter to the Corinthians


Brothers and sisters: The body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body;
God raised the Lord and will also raise us by his power.
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take Christ's members and make them the members of a prostitute? Of course not!
But whoever is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.
Avoid immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the immoral person sins against his own body.
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?
For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John


John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said, "Behold, the Lamb of God."
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" (which translated means Teacher), "where are you staying?"
He said to them,"Come, and you will see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. It was about four in the afternoon.
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated Anointed).
Then he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon the son of John; you will be called Kephas" (which is translated Peter).

Bl. Peter Donders(Priest (1809-1887))

Blessed Peter Donders Priest (1809-1887) Peter Donders was born in Tilburg, Holland, on October 27, 1809. From his youth, he felt himself called to the priesthood, but his schooling was cut short because of poverty. At the age of 22, with the help of his parish priest, he entered the minor seminary of St. Michael-Gestel as a seminarian. Peter was ordained on June 5, 1841. He was thus able to follow his missionary vocation, setting out for Suriname, which was then a Dutch colony. He arrived in Paramaribo, the principal city, on September 16, 1842, and applied himself at once to the pastoral works that occupied him until his death. His letters express his indignation at the harsh treatment of the African people who were forced to work on the plantations.In 1856, he was sent to the leper station of Batavia; and this was to be, with very few interruptions, the scene of his labors for the rest of his life. When the Redemptorists arrived in 1866 to take charge of the mission of Surinam, Peter applied for admission into the Congregation. He professed his vows on June 24, 1867. Religious profession, in associating him with a missionary congregation, gave him a more vivid sense of the apostolic life in a community, which allowed him to leave Batavia and evangelize natives and Africans. All the while, he remained committed to serving at the leprosarium of Batavia. He passed away among the lepers, poor among the poor, on January 14, 1887. He was mourned as their benefactor and invoked as a saint.He was beatified by Pope John Paul II on May 23, 1982.

St. Sava(Abbot and patron of Serbia (+ 1255))

SAINT SAVA Abbot and Patron of Serbia(+ 1255) Sava was the son of Stephen I, the founder of the Nemanydes dynasty. When Sava was 17, he became a monk on Mount Athos in Greece. With his father, he founded Khilandrai Monastery on Mount Athos. It became a house for Serbian monks and Sava was its Abbot. Sava returned home in 1207 when his brothers, Stephen II and Vulkan, began quarrelling and civil war broke out. Sava brought many of his monks with him; and from their headquarters at Studenitsa Monastery, they founded several monasteries and began the reformation and education of the country. Sava was appointed as the metropolitan of a new Serbian hierarchy by Emperor Theodore II Laskaris. He was later consecrated by Patriarch Manuel I. He returned in 1219 bringing more monks from Mount Athos. In 1222, he crowned his brother Stephen II King of Serbia. Through Sava's efforts, his countrymen were united. He translated religious works into Serbian and gave his people a native clergy and hierarchy. After his second pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Fr. Sava passed away in Tirnovo, Bulgaria, on January 14. He is the patron saint of Serbia.
