Tuesday of Holy Week – Is. 49:1-6

Fr Sean Hall, Hexham and Newcastle diocese, 4/6/2020

In this second ‘Song’ the Servant is speaking for himself. He recalls his mission and the fact that God keeps offering words of encouragement, “while I was thinking, ‘I have toiled in vain. I have exhausted myself for nothing.’”  In fact, he realises that God is sustaining him in his task and is calling him to be nothing less than, “the light to the nations so that my salvation may reach the ends of the earth.”  As we continue with this time of ‘social distancing’ and perhaps are wearied of it, we know how important it is and this Servant Song reminds us both of our task to be givers of Good News, and the fact that God is always with us.
