The poor have the Gospel preached unto them
Another helpful part of the St Matthew 11 Gaudete Gospel is the prophecy regarding the preaching of the Gospel to the poor, a fulfillment of Isaiah's words: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach . . ." Who knew that these words were prophetic? The fact that Jesus preaches in itself designates him as the Coming One. And it behooves us to become the poor, under him; blessed are the poor. Tuesday's sermon may be heard here.
