He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written: . . .
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.
Jesus seems to have understood his mission more clearly as he read Isaiah’s inspired words.
- Read the scroll’s message with the “me” being yourself.
- To what good action are you being called?
Heritage word—“The gospel invites us to see God in others and to reach out beyond ourselves to seek the good of others. This is an invitation that cannot be ignored or obscured!”
(Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel)
