With authority and power

September 1, 2020 3:00 am

“They were all amazed and said to one another, ‘What is there about his word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.’” (LK 4: 36) 

“Authority and power” comes only from love. The more we love, the more we have authority and power. When people do things by force, they are focused on themselves; when we do things using power, we are focused on others and our motivation comes from love. 

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