Jesus is the anointed one, sent by God to preach good news to the poor, to liberate captives, to give sight to the blind, and to free the oppressed. Believing this means bringing all of our problems to him. If we don’t depend on Christ in this way, he is not truly Christ for us. Our souls also need to grow in loving Jesus above everything and everyone else. St. Paul is a model of loving Christ in this way. By reading about and meditating on Christ, conversing with him in our prayer, we grow to love him in the way that he deserves and needs to be loved.
