(St. Robert Bellarmine)
Jesus said to the dead man,
“‘Young man, I tell you, arise!’
The dead man sat up and began to speak,
and Jesus gave him to his mother.” Lk 7:11-17
Know anyone who’s “dead,” beloved?
Someone who could be awoken by the love of Jesus?
By a simple touch and a word of compassion,
given by you or I?
Or maybe it’s us who are the dead ones . . .
What would it take to wake us up.
Jesus is waiting for us to speak.
Don’t give up just yet, sweet one.
Our Mother needs us.
