The Kingdom of God

Third Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

In the Gospel passage proclaimed this Sunday, Jesus announces the time of fulfilment and the coming of the Kingdom of God. St. John Paul II explains the meaning of these sayings in his encyclical Redemptoris Missio.

“Jesus of Nazareth brings God’s plan to fulfillment. After receiving the Holy Spirit at his Baptism, Jesus makes clear his messianic calling: he goes about Galilee “preaching the Gospel of God and saying: ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the Gospel'”. The proclamation and establishment of God’s kingdom are the purpose of his mission: “I was sent for this purpose”. But that is not all. Jesus himself is the “Good News,” as he declares at the very beginning of his mission in the synagogue at Nazareth, when he applies to himself the words of Isaiah about the Anointed One sent by the Spirit of the Lord. Since the “Good News” is Christ, there is an identity between the message and the messenger, between saying, doing and being. His power, the secret of the effectiveness of his actions, lies in his total identification with the message he announces; he proclaims the “Good News” not just by what he says or does, but by what he is.
