"The Spirit of the Lord has been given to me.... has anointed me.... has sent me to bring good news to the poor, to proclaim liberty to captives, and to the blind new sight, to set the downtrodden free, to proclaim the Lord's year of favour"(Lk 4:18-19). With these words, Jesus proclaims his ministry to bring people into a new and redeemed relationship with God and each other.
