weekly scripture reflection
The bent-over woman, healed by Jesus, could serve as a stand-in for all of us together as the human family. We are afflicted by powers that distort and diminish our common life—racism, poverty, hunger. Even if we do not feel personally threatened by these powers, our brothers and sisters still suffer. We need Jesus to touch us with his way of compassion and generosity.
How do you imagine Jesus’ power for healing reaching the whole human family?
What would it take for all of us to “stand up straight and praise God” together?
You're invited to make a sacred space in your day, praying here and now, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance.
