This reading has so much of the divine power of God, manifested in the Son of Man, Jesus Christ it is hard to decipher all the meanings. The loss of a son was not just a maternal loss, but a terrible financial one, as this would have been the only means of support for a widow. Jesus touches the coffin, a taboo under Jewish Law of the time; just His touch is enough to breathe life back into the woman’s son. He breaks a law to show a new law. That of love and compassion to those in most need, all you have to do is ask.


Gospel Lk 7:11-17
