The Kingdom of God
is at hand. Repent,
and believe in the
- Mark 1:15
In today’s first reading, Jonah, sent by God to warn
the people, storms through Nineveh, frightening the
citizens out of their wits. It works! They repent before
Jonah makes his way through a third of the city, and God
sees “by their actions” how they have turned from evil.
Then we hear Paul telling the Corinthians that “the
world in its present form is passing away.” He calls for a
change of heart. He stops short of telling them to set
aside their everyday lives, but still he urges them—rather
mysteriously—to live as though they aren’t doing the
things they’re doing.
Finally, Jesus stands on the shore and cries, “The
kingdom of God is at hand!” The apostles-to-be abandon
their nets and follow him. Thus in all the readings we
hear an invitation to a radical and immediate change in
our lives.

Mark 1:14
Be now my vision; open these eyes,
showing me all that I must see.
Be now my footsteps, leading the way,
taking me where I must go.
Onward to the kingdom,
you are the way.
Arise in me and I shall rise with you.
“Christ in Me Arise” by Trevor Thomson
Jonah called the people of Nineveh to open their eyes
and repent. Jesus called Simon, Andrew, James and
John to follow in his footsteps. What are we being
called to see? Where are we being called to follow?
“Onward to the kingdom” . . . a good mantra for those
times when our vision is a little blurry or our footsteps
a bit unsteady!
