Commemorations this Week
Sunday, January 21 Agnes, martyr, died around 304 Agnes was a girl of about thirteen living in Rome. The details of her martyrdom are not clear, but she gave witness to her faith and was put to death as a result, most likely by the sword. The church has honored her as one of the chief martyrs of her time.
Thursday, January 25 Conversion of Paul The week of prayer begun by the remembrance of Peter's confession now comes to an end as we recall the pivotal moment in the life of the other pillar of the early church, the apostle Paul. His encounter with the risen Christ turned him from persecutor of the followers of Christ to one of their leaders.
Friday, January 26 Timothy, Titus, and Silas, missionaries These three early Christian men were missionary companions of the apostle Paul. Timothy became bishop of Ephesus, Titus bishop of Crete, and Silas was imprisoned with Paul at Philippi until they were delivered by an earthquake.
Saturday, January 27 Lydia, Dorcas, and Phoebe, witnesses to the faith Women as well as men were important Christian leaders from the beginning, as demonstrated by these coworkers of the apostle Paul. Lydia, a seller of purple goods, lent her home for a church; Dorcas was known for charitable works; and Phoebe was a deacon in the church at Cenchrae.
Next weekend’s readings: Deut 18:15-20; Ps 111; I Cor 8:1-13; Mark 1:21-28
Have a great weekend. Love one another as Christ loves you.
