A.    Introduction

Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Good morning!
We start today the second Sunday in the Ordinary Time, Year A, with Saint Matthew as the main and characteristic resource for the Gospel reading.
The Ordinary Time, rarely interrupted by solemn season celebrations such as Christmas and Easter, is intended to deepen the profound mysteries of Our Lord’s saving events of which the most essential remains the Resurrection of Christ.
This Sunday we will contemplate the role of Christ introduced by Saint John the Baptist as “the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world.
