    Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Today’s Gospel contains the words of Isaiah, “the Spirit of the Lord is upon me… to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives…and to let the oppressed go free.”
     
    In the mid seventies I was hired by the State of North Carolina to serve as a Prison Chaplain for their maximum security prison. This prison had a death-row population. Besides being an employee I was also in training for chaplaincy.
     
    My first sermon I used the this reading from Isaiah. I informed the inmates on death row that although they have been condemned by society, never underestimate the mercy of your Lord and God.
     
    If my memory holds well, there was not a dry eye among them, including myself.
     
    Today I echo the same words, may we never underestimate the mercy and love of our Lord and God.
     
    We thank you, Lord.
     
    Father Ron P.S. Note that Monday night 1/24/22 at 8:00PM comes the announcement of the restructuring of our six area churches……Lord have mercy!
