Bulletin Insert for January 19, 2020.
Description: Bulletin insert for the 2nd Sunday of Ordinary Time points out why, in every Mass, the presiding priest says the words of John the Baptist that are quoted in John 1:29-34. “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” To which we reply. “Lord, I am not worthy … but say the word and my soul shall be healed.”
This healing began at the beginning of Mass in the Penitential Rite if we had a sincere attitude of repentance. With this healing, we receive Jesus in all of his humanity and divinity. With this healing, we leave church ready to be like John the Baptist, testifying by word and by the way we live that “now I have seen that Jesus is the Son of God.”
Then this bulletin article asks: Is Mass that kind of experience for you?
