The second reading continues from last Sunday. The surface of the reading focuses on the Liturgy of the Word, and more deeply on Jesus’ proclamation of the year of grace and favor from God. Pehaps a parish could outline its engagement in the year of mercy, or promote the corporal works of mercy in a special way. Perhaps one could reflect on the over- and under utilized populations of the parish in ministries.
