Catholic Missal of the day: Sunday, January 21 2024

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

Book of Jonah


The word of the LORD came to Jonah a second time:
"Set out for the great city of Nineveh, and announce to it the message that I will tell you."
So Jonah made ready and went to Nineveh, according to the LORD'S bidding. Now Nineveh was an enormously large city; it took three days to go through it.
Jonah began his journey through the city, and had gone but a single day's walk announcing, "Forty days more and Nineveh shall be destroyed,"
when the people of Nineveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast and all of them, great and small, put on sackcloth.
When God saw by their actions how they turned from their evil way, he repented of the evil that he had threatened to do to them; he did not carry it out.



Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
teach me your paths,
guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my savior.
Remember that your compassion, O LORD,
and your love are from of old.
In your kindness remember me,
because of your goodness, O LORD.
Good and upright is the LORD;
thus he shows sinners the way.
He guides the humble to justice,
he teaches the humble his way.

First Letter to the Corinthians


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.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark


After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the Gospel of God:
"This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."
As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them, "Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men."
Then they abandoned their nets and followed him.
He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets.
Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him.

St. Agnes((+ 304))

SAINT AGNES Virgin and Martyr (+ 304) St. Agnes was 12 when she was led to the altar of Minerva in Rome and commanded to offer incense by the laws of Diocletian. In the midst of idolatrous rites, she raised her hands to Jesus Christ and made the sign of the cross. She did not shrink after being bound hand and foot, though the gyves slipped from her hands and the pagans standing around were moved to tears. The bonds were not needed as she walked courageously to the place of torture. When the judge saw that pain held no terrors, he inflicted an insult: St. Agnes' clothes were stripped off and she was placed in the street before a pagan crowd. Undaunted, she said, "Christ will guard His own." Then Christ showed, by a miracle, the value God places upon chastity and custody of the eyes. The entire crowd turned away; and when one young man lustfully gazed at her, a flash of light struck him blind. St. Agnes was afterward tempted with flattery and an exalted marriage, but she answered, "Christ is my Spouse: He chose me first, and His I will be." At length, she was sentenced to death. In the moments before her execution, she stood erect in prayer. She then bowed her head and was decapitated in one stroke. At the moment of her death, angels accompanied her pure soul to Heaven.
