3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time (C)
We hear so often of inaugural speeches: at the start of the academic year, during the installation of a president, etc. During this speech, the orator gives a line-up of all the possible achievements do be realised during his/her term of office.
At the beginning of his ministry, Luke presents Jesus during his home coming, endowed with the power of the Spirit. Jesus gives his inaugural speech by insisting on the fact that his mission is given by the spirit. This inaugural lesson came shortly after Christ spent forty days and forty nights in the desert preparing for His public ministry. His anointing is given by the Spirit of the Lord to bring good news to the POOR, The Captives, the Blind and the Downtrodden. He has one message for them : It is the Lord’s year of favour.
Should We Build Walls or Bridges?
January 23, 2022 – Friends, our first reading this Sunday reminds us that we need walls to maintain our identity. But our ultimate purpose is not to hunker down behind those walls, but to go out and transform the world. We need both the walls that define who we are, and the bridges that allow us to bring the light of Christ to all the nations.
