2nd Sunday - A (January 19, 2020)

The Lamb of God Who Takes away the Sins of the World

Instead of some reflections on this Sunday’s readings, I’d rather put together a summary that I found run through these readings.

I’ve been reflecting on this summary, and I’d like to invite you to do the same.

The Lamb of God takes away the sins of the world (Gospel).  He thus “sanctifies us” and makes us “holy” (2nd Reading).  Consequently, what is true about Jesus Christ is now true for us:  Each one of us is now “a light to the nations, that [God’s] salvation may reach to the ends of the earth” (1st Reading).
