Bishops Message for February: Conversion of the Heart

Our Lord, Jesus of Nazareth, was formed in the living and written tradition of Mosaic Law and the writings of the prophets. In his public ministry, as told by the four Gospels, he would use the words of the prophets to underscore his proclamation of the Kingdom of His Father. At the beginning of holy Lent, the Church offers a pericope [extract] from the Book of Isaiah that images the life of Jesus.
