Gospel: Luke 4:14-22
"The spirit of the Lord is upon me" (cf. Luke 4:18)
In today's Gospel, Jesus outlines the challenges he’s facing as the Messiah. Empowered by the spirit, he will bring the good news and proclaim liberty; he will restore sights to the blind and free the imprisoned.
As followers of Christ, it is our mission to do the same. We couldn't fulfill our mission to proclaim the Good news without considering all the aspects of life. We have to liberate and remove everything that hinders us from becoming children of God, such us injustice, addiction, sin, poverty, hunger, oppression and to give the freedom, Hope, love that only in Jesus man can have.
It is not enough just to be a fan of Christ but we are also called to imitate Him and respond to the mission of bringing the Good news of salvation to all.
