“He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written: ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.’” (LK 4: 17-19)
We believe that this is also a part of our Programs’ mission: “proclaim liberty to captives” of idealistic visions or lack of respect, or demands instead of the gift of self …; “proclaim recovery of sight to the blind,” for those who can’t see hope, a chance for a new beginning, for a renewal of their marriages; “to let the oppressed go free”—with new strategies, new ideas and new strength; “ to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord,” with trust, hope and practical homework.
“The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, and to proclaim liberty to captives.” (Gospel Acclamation)
