Faith Sharing – January 15
Gospel – Mark 2:13-17
Jesus went out along the sea. All the crowd came to him and he taught them. As he passed by, he saw Levi, son of Alphaeus, sitting at the customs post. Jesus said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed Jesus. While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners sat with Jesus and his disciples; for there were many who followed him. Some scribes who were Pharisees saw that Jesus was eating with sinners and tax collectors and said to his disciples, “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus heard this and said to them, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
From the Congregation:
“To proclaim the Gospel is the greatest expression of the love of neighbor” (Arnold Janssen)
“If I were once again a young man, and had to choose my vocation again, without hesitation, I would make the same decision, to be missionary in South Shantung in China.” (Joseph Freinademetz)
The more we give, the more God gives to us. (Blessed Josefa)
I desire to give my whole life and my love for the service of the Gospel. (Blessed Maria)
