Startling Realisation

The Spirit is given to proclaim the gospel to the poor, to set people free, to comfort those in sorrow (Isaiah 61).

Simple enough.

But the one sent – St. Anthony, you, me – must surely have come to a startling realization.

First, the Spirit has been given – and to us – and for others. And we have felt the anointing.

Second, we have a rapport – a deep, human sensitivity – with those in need.

We delight in proclaiming the message and in witnessing its effects:

Hearts are healed

Freedom to prisoners

Comfort to the sorrowful

Joy to the depressed

Praise.

Amen.
