Greetings on this the Monday of the Fifth Week in Ordinary Time
Readings: Gn 1:1-19; PS 104:1-2a, 5-6, 10 and 12, 24 and 35c; Mk 6:53-56
Note: We are nine days away, an octave, from the beginning of Lent.
The first four days of creation establish the Lord’s dominion over the cosmos. The focus in primarily the vast elements of the Universe and the first life of vegetation.
It is good to understand these first four days as the preparation of the Earth for the living place for humanity.
How manifold are your works, O LORD!
In wisdom you have wrought them all—
the earth is full of your creatures;
Bless the LORD, O my soul! Alleluia.
Wherever Jesus went.
- With haste, people gathered all in need.
- Begged Jesus to touch them even if only the tassel of his cloak.
- As many as were touched were healed.
In our faith, in how we live our faith, do we do the same?
Remember, it is by the power of God that any good thing happens. But it is within our power to bring people with haste to God. Often the path is through the ordinary kindness and the helping others as friends in need.
We recognize the healer through the healing.
Peace be with you,
