THE PADRE'S PORTION 

3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Brothers and Sisters; God does not exclude! We recently celebrated our National holiday of Martin Luther King Day. We are reminded from that holiday of the very prominent and sometimes violent history of Civil Rights. Many times, prejudice takes on the practice of being “exclusive” because of differences. Do you recall the Bible verse that calls us, “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own;” This is found in 1 Peter 2:9. It is wonderful that Saint Peter refers to Christians in this manner. Peter quotes this verse from the Old Testament, in Exodus 19. God worked originally with the whole world to bring his message to mankind. Soon, it was obvious that He would need a special race of people that would be known to the rest of the world as “The People of God”. The original focus of God’s plan for salvation was worked through the Jewish Race. During the early Church, the Gospel was launched to go out to all peoples. God’s plan was to “include” all people. Acts 1:8 says, “But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”                                                                                                                                                                            Fr. David Tate

So let our sacrifice be in your presence today
    and find favor before you;
            for those who trust in you cannot be                               put to shame.
And now we follow you with our whole heart,
    we fear you and we seek your face.
Do not put us to shame,
             but deal with us in your kindness                           and great mercy.
Deliver us in accord with your wonders,
         and bring glory to your name, O Lord. 
 
                                                                                                                                                                                  Daniel 3:40-43
