When we are spiritually crippled, we are more seriously in danger of losing our salvation than when we are physically handicapped

Prophesied by Isaiah, the oracle (First Reading) described the time when Israel would be delivered from its oppressors (Assyria and Babylon) but it was also pointing to the anticipated time of the coming Messiah.
