MONDAY 5TH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME – YEAR I
MONDAY 5TH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME – YEAR I
Gn 1:1-19 / Ps 104:1-2, 5-6, 10, 12, 24, 35 / Mk 6:53-56
In the beginning, when God began to create the heavens and the earth,
the earth had no form and was void; darkness was over the deep and the
Spirit of God hovered over the waters. God said, "Let there be light";
and there was light. God saw that the light was good and he separated
the light from the darkness. God called the light `Day' and the
darkness `Night'. There was evening and there was mor¬ning: the first
day. God said, "Let there be a firm ceiling between the waters and let
it separate waters from waters." So God made the ceiling and separated
the waters below it from the waters above it. And so it was. God
called the firm ceiling `Sky'. There was evening and there was
morning: the second day. God said, "Let the waters below the sky be
gathered together in one place and let dry land appear." And so it
was. God called the dry land `Earth', and the waters gathered together
he called `Seas'. God saw that it was good. God said, "Let the earth
produce vegetation, seed-bearing plants, fruit trees bearing fruit
with seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth." And so it was.
The earth produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their
kind and trees producing fruit which has seed, according to their
kind. God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was
mor¬ning: the third day. God said, "Let there be lights in the ceiling
of the sky to separate day from night and to serve as signs for the
seasons, days and years; and let these lights in the sky shine above
the earth." And so it was. God therefore made two great lights, the
greater light to govern the day and the smaller light to govern the
night; and God made the stars as well. God placed them in the ceiling
of the sky to give light on the earth and to separate the light from
the darkness. God saw that it was good. There was evening and there
was morning: the fourth day.
Having crossed the lake, they came ashore at Gennesaret where they
tied up the boat. As soon as they landed, people recognized Jesus and
ran to spread the news throughout the countryside. Wherever he was
they brought to him the sick lying on their mats. And wherever he
went, to villages, towns or farms, they laid the sick in the
marketplace and begged him to let them touch just the fringe of his
cloak. And all who touched him were cured.
In the first reading, we see God laboring for us to give us creation,
night and day, the sky, the land, the seas, the sun, the moon and all
the plants and trees that we need to nourish ourselves.
In the Gospel, we see God in the person of Jesus still laboring for
his flock, healing them, ministering to their needs even if he hardly
has time to rest.
Look back on your personal history, from the day you were born up till
today. How has God labored for you? How has He taken care of you? How
has He healed you physically, emotionally and spiritually? What
blessings has He given you? Have you remembered to thank Him? In what
ways could you show your gratitude?
