Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

2 Samuel 18:9-10,14,24-25,30--19:3
Psalm 86:1-6
Mark 5:21-43


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"I believe ...in all that is seen and unseen."

Today's Gospel shows us the miraculous effects our faith can have, if we just believed with all our hearts. In the Apostles Creed we acknowledge God as the Creator of all things, not just Creator of the visible domain but also the invisible. With this should come a profound humility that we don't have all the answers, as indeed we don't have God's infinite power and knowledge. So, why then do we sometimes think we know better than God?!

The challenge for each one of us every day is to do the best we can with what we have been given. When events go contrary to our expectations, we need to accept our current circumstance and then work to do what we can to better it. Again, we do not have all the answers; let's not pretend that we do!

Mother Mary, help us to not resist the will of God in our lives, but help us to use every circumstance in our lives as an opportunity to grow more deeply in your Love...

Amen!
