REFLECTION ON THE DAILY GOSPEL 18 SEPTEMBER 2012

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
