Today’s Responsorial Psalm (116:12-13,14-17,18-19) and Gospel (Mark 1:14-20) share the theme of fulfillment.
My vows to the LORD I will pay
in the presence of all his people.
Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the Gospel of God:
“This is the time of fulfillment.
The Kingdom of God is at hand.
Repent, and believe in the Gospel.”
May the Lord Jesus give us the grace, wisdom, strength, and courage to fulfill our godly promises, vows, and commitments – most especially our vocation to live truly as His followers in our daily lives.
O LORD, I am your servant....
