PM: Communion Fridays--3rd. Sunday Of Ordinary Time

Like the Introit, there are two Communion antiphons. Also like the Introit, the first is for Cycles A and B.
"Follow me; I will make you fishers of men." Whereupon they, leaving their nets and their boat, followed the Lord. 
Matt. 4:19, 20
The call to the first Apostles and disciples echoes 2,000 years later. How well have we responded to it?
Go, eat rich meat, and drink sweet wine, and send portions to those who have prepared nothing for themselves; this is a holy day in honor of the Lord; do not be sad; for the joy of the Lord is our strength. 
Nehemiah 8:10
Christ is always preparing the wedding banquet for everyone. Partaking of His Body and Blood every chance we can makes every day a "holy day in honor of the Lord".
