‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, he has anointed me to bring the good  news to the poor….’ It is the Great Reversal. It is a process of reversing everything that is not right. God is acting through Jesus to reverse all that is wrong with the world. Jesus lived, died, and rose again to do that. It starts with him, and goes on still through his Spirit in us. Doing that reversal in our time and situation, that is our vocation.
