Words from Canon Niall - Third Sunday in Ordinary Time
According to Nehemiah, people in Ezra’s time did not object to lengthy sermons! Ezra preached from early morning until noon, about half a day. He was obviously good at proclaiming and explaining the Law (the first five books of the Bible), ‘translating and giving the sense, so that people could understand’. And the ceremony ended in celebration and in joy, with an outreach to the poor who could not attend.
One may rightly ask: what is happening here? The answer comes in the Gospel, where something similar, on a smaller scale, is happening. Jesus, ‘ with the power of the Spirit in him’, is preaching in the synagogue in his native Nazareth. All eyes are on him as he is handed the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. Carefully and deliberately he selects passages from Chapters 58 and 61: ‘The Spirit of the Lord has been given to me. He has anointed me to bring good news to the poor….liberty to captives….sight to the blind….’ The people gaze in expectation as one of their own rolls up that scroll and observing synagogue practice, sits down to preach. What will he say? ‘This text is being fulfilled even as you listen’. ‘Even as you listen ‘communally to the ancient story! ‘Even as you listen’ today to a prophecy being fulfilled! Jesus situates himself within the sacred story, within the communal story. That story finds its meaning in him. As for Ezra’s audience, as for Jesus and the congregation in Nazareth, today we ‘read’ ourselves into the sacred story, ‘even as we listen’. Sacred storytelling is revelatory, most especially when it happens in sacred assembly where the listening is communal. As we listen together, in synodal mode, God speaks to each.
Have a Blessed Week.
