Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
January 7, 2021 – Thursday
Gospel: Lk 4:14-22
Proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord!
Jesus came to Nazareth and read a scroll with a passage written on it that says, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.”
How are you? It has been 7 days of the year 2021! Some are already back to work from home or office, in the streets or hospitals being a frontliner or just back to the routine that we are doing. Whatever it is you are doing right now; Jesus is telling us “proclaim this year acceptable to the Lord!”. For he said in the gospel, “Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
Holy Trinity, we pray earnestly with a joyful heart and warm acceptance of this amazing prophecy: that this year will be an amazing and gracious year to all of us. May we remain faithful and steadfast in life and in love as we journey with You. Amen.
