Christ took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.
Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe in the Gospel.
We have found the Messiah: Jesus Christ, who brings us truth and grace.

Let the peace of Christ control your hearts; let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.
