St. Stanislaus Kostka Church Rochester, New York Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time Just One Can Food Drive: Today's Gospel continues our reading from Mark and describes what some believe was likely to have been a typical day in Jesus' ministry. Jesus and the disciples that chose to follow him in last week's Gospel arrive at Capernaum, a small village on the Sea of Galilee. Jesus teaches in the synagogue on the Sabbath. Mark reports that the people respond to Jesus' teaching with astonishment, noting Jesus' authority and contrasting it with the scribes'. Early in Mark's Gospel we already find evidence of the tension that will manifest itself fully in Jerusalem. After Jesus' preaching, an even more astonishing thing happens. A man possessed with an unclean spirit calls out to Jesus. Jesus orders the spirit to be quiet and drives the unclean spirit out of the man. Jesus' ability to heal those possessed by demons is an indication of his power over evil. The crowds see in Jesus' cure of the possessed man further affirmation of his authority. Jesus' power to heal gives greater credence to his teaching. Jesus impresses the crowds through his words, which are manifested with power in his deeds. Mark's Gospel tells us that because of the authority with which he healed, Jesus' fame spread throughout all of Galilee. Please Pray for Saint Blaise Blessing of Throats Saint Blaise is the patron saint of wild animals because of his care for them and of those with throat maladies. This year feast of St. Blaise is on Tuesday, February 3rd but we will have a blessing of the throats after the 4:00 p.m., 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Masses next Saturday and Sunday, February 7 and 8.
