Fourth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Posted by frmac on January 27, 2007

Most Saturday Mornings, with a cup of coffee in hand, I read Bishop Paul Andre’s column (Word of the Day) in the Cornwall Standard Freeholder. Each week he writes a little article on the second reading of the Sunday Liturgy which is down to earth, easy to read, relevant, hopeful, and inspiring. The Bishop has this remarkable gift to demystify big words and complex thoughts and to make them clear, insightful, and meaningful in just a few words of his own.

This week in an article on Corinthians 12:31-13:13 entitled, ‘A Celebration of Agape Love’, he writes: “This hymn to love is without doubt one of the most beautiful passages in the Bible. It brings to mind Pope Benedict XVI’s first encyclical, ‘Deus Caritas Est’, God is Love.”

I encourage all of you to read his column, especially this week, as he captures the essence of Pope Benedict’s wonderful encyclical while uniting it to the core meaning of the reading from St. Paul for this Sunday.

Note: Word of the Day is available on the Diocesan Website each week after it has appeared in the Corwall Standard Freeholder. If you have an online subscription to the Cornwall Stardard Freeholder, you will be able to read it on Saturday morning. Link for Diocesan Site: Word of the Day
