He spoke with authority.

“Jesus went down to Capernaum, a town of Galilee. He taught them on the sabbath, and they were astonished at his teaching because he spoke with authority.” (LK 4: 31-32)

Our Lord’s authority comes from being “the Holy One of God.” He came to bring hope, to remind us of our destination, our dignity, and what purpose we have in our lives. We are loved, created with love, and to be love. Whatever we do in our lives should lead us to this very identity.

“A great prophet has arisen in our midst, and God has visited his people.” (Gospel Acclamation)
