This week’s Roman Catholic Statement to live by:

I stand up for people who are being treated unfairly.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

Glory to you,O Lord

Jesus went into the synagogue (church) to preach in his home town of Nazareth and said:

I have come to give news to the poor.

I have come to set free people who are being bullied.

I have come to to help people who have been put down.

I have come to show a new way, to   give sight to the blind’.

The Gospel of the Lord

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
