09-16-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

September 16, 2014
(Saints Cornelius, Pope, and Cyprian, Bishop, Martyrs)
The only son of a widow from a town called Nain had died leaving the widow destitute with no family, income or means of survival.  Jesus was moved with pity for her and said to her, “Do not weep.” He stepped forward and touched the coffin; at this the bearers halted, and he said, “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

Widow of NainThere is a compassion, beloved, that Jesus is trying to teach to us too.  Can we walk into a situation and feel their needs?  Would we have seen this situation as an annoying interruption or an opportunity to spread God’s love?  Sometimes it’s hard to take our focus off ourselves, our own needs and hurts.  But when we do, when we can find another who might be helped by a simple, compassionate word or touch – what we’ll find is that all of our own troubles just disappear.  That’s Jesus working through us.  And what a wonderful world this could be if we could all be like that!!!
