These are heady and invigorating times. The first reading and the Gospel proclamation today are intimate glimpses of a commencement, an inauguration of a challenging future. In both readings, a sense of gravity prevails.

The first reading is from the mysterious Servant Songs from the book of Isaiah. The person is steadfast and brave. His courage and bravery are not located in his stout heart, but in God. We are reminded, “The Lord God opens my ear that I may hear” (Isaiah 50:4), so the servant understands the mission. And twice, “The Lord God is my help” (50:7, 9), so that the servant can endure the coming struggle.
