step out in faith & trust


Daily reflections: Monday: July 7/14


Gospel: Matthew 9:18... in this Gospel we read about three healings by Jesus. First, there is the woman who had been sick for many years and spent all our money and still was no better. As a last resort she comes to Jesus saying “if I only touch his cloak, I will be made well”. She did and was healed. We read that Jesus felt  power go out from him and while the woman expected him to criticize her for doing what she did, Jesus in said set of her “your faith has made you well”. This is interesting in that Jesus did not take credit for the healing but rather he gave her credit for her healing and he did this by saying that her faith had made her well. The faith that trusts in, take that dare, the faith I hoped, the faith that risk being criticized... yet another face of all this she followed her spirit and touched the cloak of Jesus.


Reflection: do you find you carry this kind of faith when you pray for someone who is ill?


Prayer: Jesus the healer, in this Gospel story we see the faith and the trust of the woman who touched your cloak and was healed. I pray for the grace that I to can touch the cloak of others and experience healing and transformation. Amen


Note: I am away on holidays for the next two weeks and there\'ll be no daily reflections during that time.

I hope you are able to enjoy the summer.
