3rd Sunday Ordinary Time - Year B
JONAH IN NINEVEH
Jonah was a minor Jewish prophet in the 8th century B.C. According to the Book of Jonah he was ordered by God to leave Israel and convert Iraq. He isn't thrilled with the and runs away.
Eventually he agrees to the project. He heads for Nineveh, the capital of Iraq. Amazingly he meets with a huge success in only one day. The pagans have more faith than the man of God.
TIME RUNNING OUT
Saint Paul at first believed that the end of the world was near. Later he came to understand that the "end" really meant a transition to new world of Christ.
While still in the former train of thought he encouraged people to become disconnected from the world. They should abandon marriage and worldly pursuits.
He later changed this teaching.
