July 8 – Monday
Monday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel Reading MT 9:18-26
Like the woman in today's text we may be suffering from some malady, physical or spiritual.
Like her we might feel the urge to seek healing, to touch Jesus discreetly but believing in his power for healing.
Jesus came for us to have life, and life in abundance. He raises this girl back to life, and his own story ends in his own triumph over death and sin.
Prayer: (all together)
We pray that we too can believe firmly in life and in all that enhances it, on all levels. In Jesus name. Amen
