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.
October 26, 2020 – Monday
Gospel: Luke 13:10-17
“Woman, you are set free of your infirmity.”
When Jesus saw this woman with a bent back, He took pity and healed her immediately. She was so bent forward that she cannot look upwards, nor see the people around her. In the same manner, when we despair, we look downcast, feel sad, unable to see beyond the ground we are standing on.
Let us seek Jesus to heal us and help us look towards heaven, regain our faith and seek courage to move on. Sometimes we are stuck in our everyday chores, unable to get out of running after material obligations, running a rat race all the time. Take a rest and seek what is beyond the present – our objective in life has to be greater than these daily chores.
Let us seek Mama Mary in this lovely month of the Rosary, help us ease our journey.
