Tuesday of the Twenty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
The scriptures make clear that God takes no pleasure in the death of anyone he desires life, not death. Jesus not only had heart-felt sympathy for the widow who lost her only son, he also had extraordinary supernatural power the aptitude to restore life and to make a person whole again. Jesus, however, did something which must have shocked the sensibilities of the widow and her friends. Jesus approached the bier to make physical contact with the dead man. The Jews understood that contact with a dead body made oneself ritually unclean or impure. Jesus' physical touch and personal recognition with the widow's loss of her only son not only showed the depths of his love and concern for her, but pointed to his desire to free everyone from the power of sin and moral dishonesty, and even death itself. Jesus' simple word of command "Young man, arise" not only restored him to physical life, but brought freedom and wholeness to his soul as well as his body.
Word of the Day...
Ephesians 5:8 You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.
Prayer ...
Lord God Almighty, by your grace we know today that we stand before you welcomed into your presence and received as a beloved child. Thank you for rescuing us from all the traps of the darkness and bringing us into your light. Direct our heart and our feet so they will walk your path and show forth your light. Through Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

Today's Scripture: Luke 7:11-17
11Soon afterward he went to a city called Na'in, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 12 As he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep." 14 And he came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, arise." 15 And the dead man sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. 16 Fear seized them all; and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has arisen among us!" and "God has visited his people!" 17 And this report concerning him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.
