Prince of Peace, in a world so full of turmoil and war I pray that peaceful resolutions can be found. Ease the stresses and anger of those who lead us and help everyone understand the true meaning of peace. Amen.


Matthew 4: 12-23

When Jesus heard that John had been arrested,
he withdrew to Galilee.
He left Nazareth and went to live in Capernaum by the sea,
in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali,
that what had been said through Isaiah the prophet
might be fulfilled:
Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,
the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles,
the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light,
on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death
light has arisen.
From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say,
“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
As he was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers,
Simon who is called Peter, and his brother Andrew,
casting a net into the sea; they were fishermen.
He said to them,
“Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
At once they left their nets and followed him.
He walked along from there and saw two other brothers,
James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John.
They were in a boat, with their father Zebedee, mending their nets.
He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father
and followed him.
He went around all of Galilee,
teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom,
and curing every disease and illness among the people.

Príncipe de la Paz, en un mundo tan lleno de agitación y guerra te ruego que se puedan encontrar resoluciones pacíficas. Alivia las tensiones y la ira de quienes nos dirigen y ayuda a todos a comprender el verdadero significado de la paz. Amén.


Mt 4, 12-23

Al enterarse Jesús de que Juan había sido arrestado, se retiró a Galilea, y dejando el pueblo de Nazaret, se fue a vivir a Cafarnaúm, junto al lago, en territorio de Zabulón y Neftalí, para que así se cumpliera lo que había anunciado el profeta Isaías:
Tierra de Zabulón y Neftalí, camino del mar, al otro lado del Jordán, Galilea de los paganos. El pueblo que habitaba en tinieblas vio una gran luz. Sobre los que vivían en tierra de sombras una luz resplandeció.
Desde entonces comenzó Jesús a predicar, diciendo: “Conviértanse, porque ya está cerca el Reino de los cielos”.
Una vez que Jesús caminaba por la ribera del mar de Galilea, vio a dos hermanos, Simón, llamado después Pedro, y Andrés, los cuales estaban echando las redes al mar, porque eran pescadores. Jesús les dijo: “Síganme y los haré pescadores de hombres”. Ellos inmediatamente dejaron las redes y lo siguieron. Pasando más adelante, vio a otros dos hermanos, Santiago y Juan, hijos de Zebedeo, que estaban con su padre en la barca, remendando las redes, y los llamó también. Ellos, dejando enseguida la barca y a su padre, lo siguieron.
Andaba por toda Galilea, enseñando en las sinagogas y proclamando la buena nueva del Reino de Dios y curando a la gente de toda enfermedad y dolencia.
Palabra del Señor.
