Sixth Sunday after Epiphany (Year A)

The God who reveals Himself in His incarnate Son promises life and blessing to all who obey His commandments. However, we are sinful humans among whom “there is jealousy and strife.” Jesus must instruct us against the human ways of anger, adultery, divorce and false witness. On the cross He died to forgive our sins and free us from the ways of curse and death. He who serves from His cross also offers His gift of reconciliation at His altar, and we can be at peace with our brothers and sisters in Christ who are “God’s field, God’s building.

Fifth Sunday after Epiphany (Year A)

Jesus warns that “unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven,” but He also calls His imperfect people “the salt of the earth” and “the light of the world.” That’s because the Lord Jesus came not to abolish the Law or the Prophets, “but to fulfill them” in perfect faith and love. In this faith and love, He leads us “to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free.

The Purification of Mary and the Presentation of Our Lord

The Lord opened the barren womb of Hannah and gave her the son for whom she prayed. In grateful response she presented the child, Samuel, to the Lord’s service. So, too, did Mary and Joseph present their Child—He promised from the fall, born of a virgin’s womb, who came to “destroy the one who has the power of death … and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.” Simeon and Anna rejoiced, and we with them, for we know that we, too, can “depart in peace,” facing death unafraid.

Third Sunday after Epiphany (Year A)

The light of the gospel shines on “the people who walked in darkness.” The light revealed to the nations is spread to the ends of the earth by Jesus’ disciples, who follow Him to be “fishers of men.” They go forth “proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people.,” preaching the foolishness of the cross of Christ as the very power and wisdom of God. This Word and preaching unites the church, the one body of Christ, “in the same mind and the same judgment.”

Second Sunday after Epiphany (Year A)

The incarnate Son of God is revealed as the Savior and “as a light for the nations” whose salvation reaches around the world. John the Baptist revealed Jesus as “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world,” recalling the Holy Spirit descending from heaven at Jesus’ baptism in the waters of the Jordan. In baptism, we are anointed by the same Spirit and adopted by God the Father. We are saved and sustained by the Light of the World and “not lacking in any gift” as we await His revealing.
