“The Spirit of the Lord has anointed me to bring Good News.”
(Luke 4:18)

Dear Brothers in the Priesthood, Brothers and Sisters,

The Gospel which we have just read offers us imperishable life, liberty, light and hope. It echoes what Pope Francis said about the joy of the Gospel and its power to transform each of us. Reflecting on the gift of priesthood in our Diocese and in our parish, we remember the life-giving constant service, which you my brother priests give so effectively.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Gospel we have just read speaks of various reactions to Jesus Christ as the Lord and Saviour. There are those who cannot believe Christ would come from Galilee; there was conflict with the authorities, they were wanting to pass judgement on Jesus. However, our faith says that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God, our Lord and Redeemer.
