A pious Church tradition teaches that Christ began preaching the good news of His mission on September 1st, which is the date our Lord entered the Synagogue in Nazareth, and was given the book of the Prophet Isaiah to read, and He opened it and found the place where it is written: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.
