  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 5:21-43)
Jesus gave divine hope to a father who had just lost a dearly loved child. It took substantial courage and risk for the ruler of a synagogue to honestly go to Jesus and to invite the contempt of his neighbors and relatives. Even the hired mourners laughed at him in contempt. Their grief was devoid of any expectation. Nonetheless, Jesus took the girl by the hand and delivered her from the clutch of death. This man was a ruler of the synagogue, and well-versed in the law. He had surely read that while God created all other things by his word, man had been shaped by the hand of God. He trusted therefore in God that his daughter would be bring back to him life, and restored to life by that same hand which, he knew, had created her. He who laid hands on her to shape her from nothing, once more lays hands upon her to change her from what had perished.” In both instances we see Jesus' personal apprehension for the needs of others and his readiness to heal and re-establish life. In Jesus we see the never-ending love of God extending to each and every individual as he gives freely and wholly of himself to each person he meets. Do we come close to the Lord with confident hope that he will hear our request and act?
