Year A- 3rd Sunday in ordinary time
12 Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee.
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusShortly after my Baptism in the river Jordan, John the Baptist was arrested, to die later because of my cause. I moved then to Capernaum in fulfillment of the Holy Scriptures. My time had come to start the salvific mission that would change the face of the earth.
I was the great light that came to shine in the world, already obscured by the darkness of the ignorance of God and the life of sin. My words were not ordinary words but the Word of God, I was in fact that Word of God living in the flesh.
Therefore I came to make use of my creative words in order to re-create the life of man by my forgiveness, otherwise the curse made in Paradise would stand and dust would go back to dust for eternity. I came to offer the resurrection after death and eternal life, which is to be found in Me only.
The first words of my message are the key to your salvation: "Repent, the Kingdom of Heaven is near", in fact it is within yourselves. In other words it depends entirely on your will to decide either for me, the light, or for darkness; for me, the life, or for death. These words have continual power so that anyone who listens to them and puts them into practice will be given grace to live the way of life I that have proposed.
To those who first listened to them, I also said: "follow me", and because they were fishermen I told them to become fishers of men. They had no objection to my divine invitation because they were given the light of understanding and the wisdom to appreciate the weight of my call to become disciples.
I am repeating the same words to every soul. Repent, my Kingdom starts in your heart, in your decision to accept my word and in your humility to accept my offer, "follow me", I will make you disciples and apostles, you will have a safe place in my Kingdom, your reward will be paid with infinite grace and everlasting joy.
