Fifth Sunday after Epiphany

Watchword for the week — For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2

Sunday, February 5 — Isaiah 58:1-9a,(9b-12); Psalm 112:1-9,(10)
1 Corinthians 2:1-12,(13-16); Matthew 5:13-20

When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover anything about their future. Ecclesiastes 7:14 NIV

Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26

Divine Creator, you make and care for all we know, yet much about you is unknowable. Give us strength during those times when we fail to understand your mystery, and help us know that no matter what, you feed us with your love. In your name, we pray. Amen.
