Usually the link between the first reading and the gospel reading is apparent. However, this Sunday we may have to look more closely; but once we see the link, we will hear news of great joy! The first reading from the Book of Exodus contains the well-known story of God speaking to Moses in the burning bush, giving him instructions to go to Egypt and to tell Pharaoh to set the Israelites free. The Gospel from Luke is a call by Jesus to the repentance of sins.
