January 15, 2017– Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
The Sacrament of Reconciliation: On Saturdays from 4:15 to 4:45 PM and
ŚWIADEK
Dzisiejszy fragment Ewangelii mówi o wyznaniu wiary Jana Chrzciciela w Bóstwo Jezusa Chrystusa. Wyznanie
to czyni z syna Elżbiety i Zachariasza drogowskaz wskazujący drogę innym. Po jego słowach: „Oto Baranek
Boży”, na drugi dzień, dwaj uczniowie Chrzciciela opuścili mistrza i powędrowali za Jezusem. To publiczne
wyznanie wiary Jana Chrzciciela ukazało im drogę do Zbawiciela.
Wielu współczesnych ludzi usiłuje twierdzić, że wiara to prywatna sprawa, to rzeczywistość, którą można
zamknąć na dnie swego serca i nie należy jej na zewnątrz ujawniać. Najczęściej pogląd ten zawarty jest w
stwierdzeniu: „Należę do ludzi wierzących, lecz niepraktykujących”. Zwolennicy tego sposobu myślenia nie zdają
sobie sprawy z tego, że pośrednio przyznają się do braku chrześcijańskiej wiary.
Ktokolwiek bowiem wchodzi przez akt wiary w kontakt z Chrystusem, jego serce wypełnia nie tylko prawdziwe
szczęście, lecz i wielkie pragnienie podzielenia się nim z innymi. Wykładnikiem autentycznej wiary jest
pragnienie apostolstwa, troska, by innym ukazać drogę do prawdziwego szczęścia. Jeśli więc ktoś twierdzi, że
wiara to jego prywatna sprawa, dowodzi jednoznacznie, że jej nie posiada. Ona bowiem nigdy nie mieści się w
sercu człowieka, lecz przelewa się na innych. To należy do jej natury. Nadmiar szczęścia zawartego w akcie wiary
zmusza człowieka wierzącego do dzielenia się nim z innymi. Najprostszą formą publicznego wyznania wiary jest
udział w niedzielnej Eucharystii.
Już samo wędrowanie do kościoła jest wyznaniem naszej wiary, nie mówiąc o obecności przy ołtarzu, wspólnej
modlitwie, śpiewie, czy przyjmowaniu Komunii świętej. Ta niedzielna praktyka religijna kształtuje z kolei
wyznanie wiary w życiu codziennym. Staje się wówczas ona drogowskazem ukazującym nie łatwą, ale jedynie
pewną i piękną drogę do prawdziwego szczęścia. Kto twierdzi, że wiara to jego prywatna sprawa, winien głębiej
przemyśleć Chrystusowe słowa: „Wy jesteście światłością świata”.

Thank you for your Genorosity
30 minutes before weekday Mass’.
The Sacrament of Baptism: By Appointment
The Sacrament of Marriage: Should be arranged at least 6 months in advance.
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.”
THREE MISSIONS
Today we begin with one of the “servant songs” from the book of Isaiah, a song prophetic
of Jesus’ ministry of service. Isaiah’s mission is not only to bring back the children of
Jacob to gather in Israel; it is also to be “a light to the nations”
(Isaiah 49:6). Jesus Christ, as servant, will be the fulfillment of
the ancient prophecy and the basis of the new.
This Sunday we begin a series of readings from Paul’s letter to
the Corinthians. Here Paul is identified by his mission: he is an
apostle of Jesus Christ. The church at Corinth to whom he
addresses this letter is also identified: it is part of the universal
church of God. The Corinthians are called to holiness, as are
all Christians.
Though the feast of the Baptism of the Lord was celebrated last Monday, today’s Gospel
also alludes to the importance of that event. The reading emphasizes that Jesus “outranks”
John: his baptism in the Spirit will eradicate sin. Jesus accepts John’s baptism, even
though it is he himself who is the Lamb of God.

BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD.
The Church believes that the key, the centre, and the purpose of the whole of man’s history is to be found in its Lord
and Master.
By Pope John Paul II
The thesis which denies the salvific universality of the mystery of Jesus Christ has no biblical foundation. In fact, the
truth of Jesus Christ, Son of God, Lord and only Savior, who through the event of his incarnation, death and
resurrection has brought the history of salvation to fulfillment, and which has in him its fullness and centre, must be
firmly believed as a constant element of the Church's faith.
The New Testament attests to this fact with clarity: "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world"
(Jn 1:29).
In his discourse before the Sanhedrin, Peter, in order to justify the healing of a man who was crippled from birth,
which was done in the name of Jesus (cf. Acts 3:1-8), proclaims: "There is salvation in no one else, for there is no
other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).
St. Paul adds, moreover, that Jesus Christ "is Lord of all", "judge of the living and the dead", and thus "whoever
believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name" (Acts 10: 36,42,43).
Paul, addressing himself to the community of Corinth, writes: "Indeed, even though there may be so-called gods in
heaven or on earth—as in fact there are many gods and many lords—yet for us there is one God, the Father, from
whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through
whom we exist" (1 Cor 8:5-6).
Furthermore, John the Apostle states: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who
believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but in order that the world might be saved through him" (Jn 3:16-17).
In the New Testament, the universal salvific will of God is closely connected to the sole mediation of Christ: "[God]
desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God; there is also one mediator
between God and men, the man Jesus Christ, who gave himself as a ransom for all" (1 Tim 2:4-6).
It was in the awareness of the one universal gift of salvation offered by the Father through Jesus Christ in the Spirit
(cf. Eph 1:3-14), that the first Christians encountered the Jewish people, showing them the fulfillment of salvation
that went beyond the Law and, in the same awareness, they confronted the pagan world of their time, which aspired to
salvation through a plurality of saviors. This inheritance of faith has been recalled recently by the Church's
Magisterium: "The Church believes that Christ, who died and was raised for the sake of all (cf. 2 Cor 5:15) can,
through his Spirit, give man the light and the strength to be able to respond to his highest calling, nor is there any
other name under heaven given among men by which they can be saved (cf. Acts 4:12). The Church believes that the
key, the centre, and the purpose of the whole of man's history is to be found in its Lord and Master".
