The gospel from Luke and the reading from John are about love,
the love from God and our love for him. The gospel from Luke tells
us that the love from God has no limits and is non-discriminatory.
He sent his son to love and serve the poor, the captives, the blind
and the oppressed, and Jesus tells those in the synagogue that it
is he who will fulfill the prophesy of Isaiah. He has come to share
his love with those in the synagogue, but also with all of us. His
love brings us joy if we are open to it when we are destitute in
spirit. His love brings us liberty from the captivating temptations
of this world. His love clears our blindness and opens our eyes
to the many gifts that he has bestowed on us. His love frees us
from the oppression of greed, hatred, jealousy and revenge.
