For 24 January 2021, Third Sunday in Ordinary Time, based on Mark 1:14â€“20
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, â€˜The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.â€™
As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lakeâ€”for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, â€˜Follow me and I will make you fish for people.â€™ And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.
