A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.
The Spirit of Almighty God is upon me,
for God has anointed me;
God has sent me to bring good news to the poor,
to bind the wounds of the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to captives
and release to prisoners,
to announce a year of favor from Our God,
and the day of God’s vindication.
The word of God recorded in the book of the prophet Isaiah
