“He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor.”
This passage from Isaiah indicates that Jesus was aware of living the grace of his baptism.
- How are you, as a baptized Christian, being asked to bring glad tidings to people who are poor in any way this day?
Heritage word—“The gospel impels us to share its good news, not so much with friends and wealthy neighbors, but above all with the poor, the sick, and the marginalized.”
(Pope Francis, Joy of the Gospel)
