August 31, 2015 (Luke 4:16-30)

“He has sent me… to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.” The “year acceptable to the Lord” is also called a Jubilee Year. Pope Francis has announced a “Jubilee Year” that begins with the First Sunday of Advent (the start of a new liturgical year). It is a year honing in on the mercy of God. This special year is meant to change us and change the world for the better. We need to make a difference and take on more and more God’s attitude to forgiveness; that it is unconditional, for example. May we echo Jesus’ words about His fulfilling that passage from Isaiah. may we be able to say,” Today, the Year of mercy is fulfilled in your hearing.
