Gospel Reflection for January 27, 2013, 3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jesus read, “The Spirit of God is upon me, for God has anointed me and sent me to proclaim good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty for captives, sight to the blind, release to prisoners, to announce a year of favor from the Lord.

Luke 4.18-19

The prisoners make the list along with the poor, the weak and the disabled?the ones about whom it is the very easiest to say, “not worth it.”  They are the ones who seem to take more from society or from individuals than they give, the ones about whom we might ask, “What good have they ever done for us?”

As Jesus so vividly points out, we humans are in this thing together.  In this amazing and wonderful and occasionally painful journey called life, none of us deserves to be a part of it any more than the most burdensome companion does.

Talk about a time when a person surprised you by offering gifts to a community that you didn’t know they had.
