Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for June 27, 2021.
Description: Wouldn’t it be great if we could actually touch and feel the hem of Jesus’ garment? How can we get that close to him? This bulletin insert for the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time explains that it is possible. It’s what Jesus wants! Using Mark 5:21-43, it explains that knowing Jesus is to know divine life, which transforms our earthly life into something more like his and then takes us to heaven.
If we fear that our trials are leading to disastrous conclusions, we’ve forgotten how powerful Jesus is, and we’ve forgotten that he cares enough to rescue us. We need to move ourselves closer to Jesus. We have to press on through the crowd of distractions and doubts, with our eyes fixed only on Jesus and our hands reaching out to him in prayer. If we fear that God doesn’t care enough to help us, we need to spend more time learning why Jesus gave up his life for us and why the Father sent him to us.
