This week the readings are found in the first book of Kings 17: 17-24, Psalm 30, Paul’s letter to the Galatians 1:11-19, and Luke’s Gospel 7:11-17.
This week we hear of three resurrections, two physical, Elijah and Jesus raising sons for their mothers and one spiritual, Paul’s conversion. I am sure that most of us can’t relate to dying and being reborn in a physical sense but we can understand what Paul went through. As this is something that happens to us all as we celebrate the sacraments, the Lord comes into our lives. For many we treat this as a thing to keep to ourselves and cherish it but we are called to go out into the world and share the presence of the Lord. Since by our baptism we are called to be prophets to the nations. This also is a call for us to learn more about the world around us and how to relate it to the message of the Lord.
