Second Sunday in Ordinary Time, Cycle B, 15 Jan 2012

Click here to download and listen to this homily (12 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. Today we hear young Samuel answer the call of God, "Speak Lord, for your servant is listening." He was taught to respond this way by his spiritual mentor, Eli. We hear St Paul act as a spiritual mentor through his written letter, "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?" After John the Baptist points out Jesus, "Behold the Lamb of God." Andrew brings Peter to Jesus. Let's pay attention to our spiritual mentors as well as being one for others.

Readings: 1 Samuel 3b-10, 19; Psalm 40; 1 Corinthians 6:13c-15a, 17-20; John 1:35-42
