3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Another big week on campus! We’ve got sign ups open for women’s and men’s groups still, as well as Tulsa CYA Volleyball and TU Student Association Service Day. And stay tuned to our Twitter: there could be a surprise event coming up Friday or Saturday night for the folks who couldn’t make it to OCCSC. Check out the bulletin and write Jesus in your schedule this week (three opportunities for Adoration!): Bulletin-2013-01-27.pdf

Finally, the Gospel reading for next Sunday (Luke 4:21-30):

Jesus began speaking in the synagogue, saying:
“Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
And all spoke highly of him
and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth.
They also asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?”
He said to them, “Surely you will quote me this proverb,
‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say,
‘Do here in your native place
the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’”
And he said, “Amen, I say to you,
no prophet is accepted in his own native place.
Indeed, I tell you,
there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah
when the sky was closed for three and a half years
and a severe famine spread over the entire land.
It was to none of these that Elijah was sent,
but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon.
Again, there were many lepers in Israel
during the time of Elisha the prophet;
yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.”
When the people in the synagogue heard this,
they were all filled with fury.
They rose up, drove him out of the town,
and led him to the brow of the hill
on which their town had been built,
to hurl him down headlong.
But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away.
