Sharing the Word for January 8, 2022

Saturday after Epiphany

January 8, 2022
Daily Reading from the USCCB: John 3:22-30

Today’s reading from the Gospel of John serves as a conclusion to the first portion of the Church’s liturgical year. We’ve heard about the preparations that God made for the birth of Jesus and John, and how these preparations came to fulfillment. We’ve been given some initial idea of the mission and characteristics of Jesus and John. And now it’s time for them to go their separate ways. “He must increase,” says John. “I must decrease.”

We all have our own missions–our own callings from the Lord. As we end this Christmas season and move into “Ordinary Time,” we pray that we will be found able to carry out faithfully and fruitfully what God has called us to do.
