“Today the word of the prophets is fulfilled before our eyes. The action of Christ soothes, heals and restores hope.”

Readings: Second Sunday of Ordinary Time

“Today is this passage of Scripture fulfilled” (Luke 1)

This Sunday's biblical texts emphasise the importance of the Word of God in the lives of believers. This word joins us in what we are experiencing, including in the most desperate situations. This is what we discover by listening to the book of Nehemiah (1st reading). Listening to the Word of God is absolutely essential. When we read or listen to a text of the Bible, it is God who speaks to us. This encounter with him is a source of joy and hope. We will never have finished rediscovering the strength of this Word of God.

When we listen to her with an attentive heart, it becomes food for the road: “Man lives not only by bread but by every word that comes out of God's mouth.”

As we read the gospel, we discover that this Word of God is good news. Jesus just read a passage from the book of Isaiah: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because the Lord has anointed me. He sent me to bring the Good News to the poor, to announce to the captives their liberation, and to the blind that they will find their sight, to release the oppressed, to proclaim a favorable year granted by the Lord.” And Jesus announces to his listeners that it is “today” that this word is fulfilled. Yes, the word of the prophets is fulfilled before the eyes of all. The action of Christ soothes, heals and restores hope. And it is now that all this is happening. The three readings invite us to put the Word of God at the center of our lives. It is essential that every prayer, witness and preaching be based on the Word of God. It is essential that our daily lives be impregnated with this Word.

On this day we can make our own the prayer of the Psalm: “The word of the Lord is perfect, which gives life again. The charter of the Lord is sure that makes the simple wise.”
