Third Sunday of Ordinary Time

A dialogue of love

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

Pope Francis has designated the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time as Sunday of the Word of God.

During the 20th century and most especially since the pontificate Pius XII, popes have actively promoted the study and reading of the Word of God since, as St. Jerome reminded us, we come to know Christ through Sacred Scripture.

We, Christians, do not follow a book. We are disciples of Someone who is alive, whom we come to know through the testimony of eyewitnesses who, inspired by God, have left their own witness recorded in the sacred texts. That can be clearly seen in the passage from the Gospel according to Luke proclaimed this Sunday.

The author of Sacred Scripture is God. It is God’s initiative to speak to us in a human manner, in a language accessible to us, so that we can come to know Him. It is, therefore, very important to know his Word, so as to enter into a dialogue of love with Him.

It’s a safe bet that “Mother Mary Lange” is not a household name in most U.S. Catholic circles. That unhappy state of affairs may change, though, thanks to a courageous initiative now underway in Baltimore, one of America’s most troubled cities.
