Reflection for the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time 2020

Theknowing. I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.” On this Fourth Sunday after Christmas we hear the testimony of John. In the gospel, John twice says: “I did not know him.” It seems odd for John to say such a thing. Afterall, John and Jesus were cousins. It is true that they live...

Jon Cog writes, "For Christmas, mathematician Donald Knuth shared some great geeky fun.

For example, one author wrote an entire book where each word has exactly the number of...
