4th Sunday Ordinary Time:  Year A

1st Reading: Zeph. 2:3,3:12-13; 2nd Reading: 1Cor. 1:26-31; Gospel: Matt. 4:12-23.

We all start life as helpless little babies in and out of our mother’s womb. But once we begin to feel that we are grown up enough pride begins to rear its selfish and defiant head in us. Yet with all His fullness as God Jesus humbles himself unto shame in order to save us all. As we humbly submit our lives totally to God in Christ we shall be blessed abundantly.  Most Rev Anthony J.V. Obinna, Archbishop Emeritus (Owerri Archdiocese).
