“Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news of him spread throughout the whole region. He taught in their synagogues and was praised by all.”
- Jesus had just returned from his temptations in the desert.
- Notice, he came “in the power of the Spirit,” not exhausted or devastated.
- What can you learn from Jesus here when temptations come your way?
Heritage word—“To stay rooted in past pain and unforgiveness is to ‘play’ the victim and to remain in a perpetual state of spiritual paralysis.”
(Sister Constance Marie, 10thProvincial of the Toledo Province)
