June 5, 2016 - 10th Sunday of Ordinary Time

When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, “Do not weep.” - Luke 7:13

 

Jesus encounters a widow whose only son has just died, and is moved with compassion because he knows the difficult life that she now faces without her son’s support.

We rightly call Jesus ‘Teacher’,  but he also spent much of his time as healer - healing Illnesses of mind and body.  In this case, he raises the man to life! If we want to follow the Lord, we must also be willing to reach out in mercy to those in need of God’s healing presence.

heavenly wind and tongues of fire, God pours out the Holy Spirit upon all
who put
their faith in Jesus the Christ and become his disciples.
