    The King’s Authority: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

    The King’s Authority: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Last week, Jesus announced the kingdom of God is at hand. This week, in mighty words and deeds, He exercises His dominion—asserting royal authority over the ruler of this world, Satan (see John 12:31).

    Notice that today’s events take place on the sabbath. The sabbath was to be an everlasting sign—both of God’s covenant love for His creation (see Exodus 20:8–11; 31:12–17), and His deliverance of His covenant people, Israel, from slavery (see Deuteronomy 6:12–15).

    Following Him: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Following Him: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

    The calling of the brothers in today’s Gospel evokes Elisha’s commissioning by the prophet Elijah (see 1 Kings 19:19–21).

    As Elijah comes upon Elisha working on his family’s farm, so Jesus sees the brothers working by the seaside. And as Elisha left his mother and father to follow Elijah, so the brothers leave their father to come after Jesus.

    Siguiéndolo a El: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre el 3º Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario

    Siguiéndolo a El: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre el 3º Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario

    La llamada de los hermanos, en el Evangelio dominical, evoca la elección de Eliseo por el profeta Elías (cf. 1R 19,19–21).

    Así como Elías encuentra a Eliseo trabajando en los cultivos familiares, Jesús ve a los hermanos trabajando en la ribera del mar. Y como Eliseo dejó a su madre y padre para seguir a Elías, también los hermanos dejan a su padre para ir en pos de Jesús.

    Hearing the Call: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Hearing the Call: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

    In the call of Samuel and of the first Apostles, today’s readings shed light on our own calling to be followers of Christ.

    Notice in the Gospel today that John’s disciples are prepared to hear God’s call. They are already looking for the Messiah, so they trust in John’s word and follow when he points out the Lamb of God walking by.

    Samuel is also waiting on the Lord—sleeping near the Ark of the Covenant where God’s glory dwells, taking instruction from Eli, the high priest.

    Oyendo la llamada: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre el 2º Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario

    En las llamadas de Samuel y del primero de los Apóstoles, las lecturas de este domingo nos dan luz sobre nuestra propia vocación de seguidores de Cristo.

    En el Evangelio, hay que notar que los discípulos de Juan están preparados para escuchar la llamada de Dios. Ellos ya están buscando al Mesías, por lo tanto confían en la palabra de Juan y le comprenden cuando él les señala al Cordero de Dios que pasa a su lado.

    The Anointing: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

    The Anointing: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

    The Liturgy last week revealed the mystery of God’s plan—that in Jesus all peoples, symbolized by the magi, have been made “co-heirs” to the blessings promised to Israel. This week, we’re shown how we claim our inheritance.

    Jesus doesn’t submit to John’s baptism as a sinner in need of purification. He humbles Himself to pass through Jordan’s waters in order to lead a new “exodus.”

Sweet and short

Great insight that is powerful without being too lengthy. I love how Dr Hahn ties the Sunday Readings together which helps me be better prepared to receive the Word on Sunday.
