Gospel: John 11:1-45
"Forgive my little faith." ("Lazarus" by Corrinne May)
There were times when we feel that it was dead-end for us but there was Jesus who always reminds us that there is still life and hope for us.
Today's Gospel narrates to us how Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. But before He did it, there was Martha who cried out to Jesus expressing her sorrow on the loss of her brother. With this, Jesus reassured her that He is the resurrection and the life.
Sometimes we are like Martha who display lapses of faith. But Jesus will never leave us. He gives us hope when we experience despair, he gives us life in times when we are spiritless.
Let us ask Mother Mary to help us strengthen our faith in times when we need Jesus to be our aide and guide.
