Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
Just Have Faith
January 30, 2018 – Tuesday
Jesus in the gospel did miracles, miracles that is because of faith. The woman whose sickness cannot be cured by many doctors was healed when he touched Jesus’ robe despite the crowd pressing upon Jesus she still went through and touched Jesus. On the other hand, the synagogue’s daughter has died and Jesus made that little girl walk again.
The gospel is telling us to have faith. The pressing crowd signifies the challenges we are encountering in life, it may be personal challenges, spiritual challenges, or more and there are times that those challenges are pressing us really hard. We might feel that we all the possible cure doesn’t work anymore but always remember that there is still Jesus waiting to be touched at the end of the crowd.
When Jesus made the little girl walk again from death, it tells us that in life even if the chance is already 0% or everything is dead, a little faith will turn everything.
The gospel is telling us how great a faith can do, we as the hearer of this gospel have witnessed how great Jesus is so the invitation is to spread the faith we have in our heart.
