Q: I am a confused priest, using previous notes for daily Mass homilies.
For January 5
The Gospel is John 1:43-51
This year the Gospel is Mark 6:45-52
(I even looked at Word Among Us —and they have it as I listed above)
Why would there be a change?
A: There has been no change. The gospel for January 5 remains John 1:43-51. The USCCB website is correct: https://bible.usccb.org/bible/readings/010523.cfm.
Mark 6:45-52 is the gospel for Wednesday after Epiphany, which we do not observe this year.
