“Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him. He said to them, ‘Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.’”
- Picture this dramatic gesture of Jesus and see the worshippers intently looking at him.
- What message did Jesus’ manner and words seem to convey to them?
- What do they convey to you?
Heritage word—“We cannot separate Jesus’ prayer from his works. In prayer he came to insights which propelled him into mission.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10thSuperior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
