This Week

Dear Parish Family:

“Fulfilled in your hearing”

The readings for this Sunday invite us to reflect on the importance and power of the Word of God and its challenge for us today. The Word of God is called “sacramental”, in the sense that when it is spoken, read or heard, God becomes present in our midst. For that to happen to us, we must listen to the Word, accept it into our hearts, and then put it into practice in our daily life.

In today’s gospel, on a Sabbath, Jesus, standing before the people in the synagogue of his hometown of Nazareth, read and interpreted the prophetic message of Isaiah about the mission of the Messiah. Jesus claimed that He is the One sent “bring glad tidings to the poor, liberation to captives, recovery of sight to the blind and freedom to the oppressed”. In other words, in his inaugural address, Jesus announced a biblical year of Jubilee or a year of mercy and forgiveness from God the Father. To the great amazement and disbelief of people of his hometown, Jesus declared that Isaiah’s prophecy is being fulfilled at that very moment “ in your hearing”, because the prophecy foretells and describes Jesus’s own mission and ministry.

Jesus’ mission is still to give liberation to everyone who will listen to his “Good News”, accept it and put it into practice. Today, it is part of our mission as Christians to be prophetic, preach and witness to the Gospel of life. We have to promote a culture of life by advocating for the respect of the life and the dignity of the unborn, the right to healthcare as a necessity for everyone in our society and the right to a living wage enough to maintain a normal standard of living. In other words, a Christian must be concerned about the whole person.

Jesus performed miracles because he was filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Let us continue to be open to the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives so that we can be instruments of Christ’s saving freedom. Have a blessed week!

- Fr. Jean Jadotte
