As a covenant of the people

March 30, 2015 7:35 am

“I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice, I have grasped you by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant of the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.” (IS 42: 6-7)

Jesus came to us “as a covenant of the people,” to open our eyes—“those who live in darkness,” and to bring us out—prisoners of sin and weakness. Holy Week is a mystery of His love, where we are not observers, but participants, where we talk not about the past, but about the present.

“Hail to you, our King; you alone are compassionate with our faults.” (Gospel Acclamation)
