Reflection for the 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time – Year B

There is something in our human make-up that is always attracted to what’s “beyond” or “something higher”. There is something inside of us that always yearns for more. Think of those who go on great expeditions – traversing dangerous terrain and extreme weather conditions in a place like the Himalayas to summit one of the most treacherous mountains in the world like K2. Or perhaps the sportsperson who pushes their body to the limit to achieve something that others have not.

The Scriptures this weekend tap into the ever-present human longing, the desire for something “beyond” or “something higher”. They invite us to seek more, to recognize that things don’t have to be as they are, in our social, intellectual and personal lives.
