In this reflection for the third Sunday in ordinary time, Kristen Fisher shows how the readings are meant to remind us that knowing God is the only thing that can truly make us happy.
Whatever thing we’re wishing for, we think that will make us happy. But we’re always coming up disappointed. It’s like stumbling around in the dark and never finding the thing we’re looking for. But Isaiah says that God will bring us abundant joy and great rejoicing. David knew the answer. He knew the real source of happiness.And in our gospel reading, we see how some of the apostles discovered it too.
Hey, moms and dads, do you want to help your kids grow in faith and become the awesome, holy humans that God created them to be? We’re going to go ahead and assume that since you’re listening to this podcast, your answer is yes, and you are in luck because we want to help you do this. We have launched a brand new online hub, a community for Catholics who want to raise a family of faith and the resources to actually help them.
