"Today Jesus speaks those same words to you: �Take heart, I am here with you, allow me to enter and your life will change.'" Pope Francis underscored this today, Sunday, January 26, 2020, the first Sunday of the Word of God, since he instituted it in his letter Aperuit Illis. This liturgical feast is to annually fall on the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time. The Holy Father's homily reminded how the Lord sought out people, where they were, as they were, and then their lives changed. He also called for faithful to welcome this change in their own lives, regardless of where they find themselves, by letting the Lord reach us through His Word.
