3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
"And the people of Nineveh believed in God; they proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least." (Jonah 3:1-10)
"This is what I mean: our time is growing short." (1 Cor 7:29-31)
"The time has come and the kingdom of God is at hand." (Mark 1:14-20)
Do this exerise today: Imagine what it would be like during our last days. Who would be the people around us? What would they be saying about us? How have we lived our lives? What would still be important? Would it still be about wealth, survival, even fame? Or would it be about life fully lived, where we have given everything in love without asking to be repaid ... the story of our lives is none other than the story of God in us. Let's work for it and begin life anew .
