Monday of Holy Week – Is. 42:1-7

Fr Sean Hall, Hexham and Newcastle diocese, 4/5/2020

In this first ‘Servant Song’ it is God who speaks. We are told that God delights in the servant who is endowed with God’s Spirit. The role of the Servant is to “bring true justice to the nations”, but it is the manner in which he carries out this task that we see fulfilled in Jesus’ own ministry, “He does not break the crushed reed, nor quench the wavering flame.” Saying that, nor does the Servant waver or be crushed himself/herself, “Until true justice is established on earth.” Never before, in our lifetimes, has that same call to be servants to each other been more important than it is today.
