5th Sunday of Ordinary Time

In today’s readings and gospel, three people, Isaiah, Paul, and Simon, show the example of how each of them allows God to penetrate the deeper level of oneself and how they are led by God next. We are about to be invited into the season that prepares us for Easter. What we need to do for this preparation is to practice: letting God penetrate ourselves over our weakness which blocks us from Him and responding to Him by giving our talents back, so that we are fully alive and available to God.
