Third Sunday in Ordinary Time 20-21 January 2018
Seeing today’s Gospel is set by the water’s edge, this story seems appropriate.
One day, three men were hiking and unexpectedly came upon a large raging river. They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do so. The first man prayed to God, ‘Please God, give me the strength to cross this river.’ In an instant God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours, after almost drowning a couple of times.
