About Today Readings

1 Corinthians 2:1-5. Psalm 118(119):97-102. Luke 4:16-30.

Lord, I love your commands—Psalm 118(119):97-102.

‘The Spirit of the Lord has been given to me.’

On us, too, rests the Spirit of the Lord, for ‘they who are sons and daughters of God are led by the Spirit of God’. We demonstrate this by docility to the Spirit’s inspirations.

But receiving the Spirit is meant to make us apostles also.

We too are sent – in our own time, place and circumstances of life – to preach the Good News to the poor (and there are many kinds of poverty), to proclaim new sight to the blind (and there are many ways of being blind), to set the downtrodden free (and the crushing burdens people carry are manifold).
