Third Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jon 3:1-5, 10
Then the word of the Lord came to Jonah the second time, saying, “Arise, go to Nin´eveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.” So Jonah arose and went to Nin´eveh, according to the word of the Lord. Now Nin´eveh was an exceedingly great city, three days’ journey in breadth. Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s journey. And he cried, “Yet forty days, and Nin´eveh shall be overthrown!” And the people of Nin´eveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them to the least of them.
When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God repented of the evil which he had said he would do to them; and he did not do it.
1 Cor 7:29-31
I mean, brethren, the appointed time has grown very short; from now on, let those who have wives live as though they had none, and those who mourn as though they were not mourning, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they had no goods, and those who deal with the world as though they had no dealings with it. For the form of this world is passing away.
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel.”
And passing along by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zeb´edee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. And immediately he called them; and they left their father Zeb´edee in the boat with the hired servants, and followed him.
