GOD VISITS HIS PEOPLE
 
He showed the depth of His concern for the woman bereaved not only of her husband, but of her only child as well. This woman had lost her loved ones and her future security and livelihood, also.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
It's very likely that at times in our lives we have been doubted, mistrusted, or had our abilities questioned. As you can read in this Sunday's readings, Elijah, St. Paul, and Jesus Christ experienced the same thing. What did they do? They didn't rage and retaliate. They defended themselves staying close to God and their mission. They knew it was important that God must visit his people and care for their greatest need.
 
In Luke's Gospel we read about the people glorifying God, exclaiming, "A great prophet has arisen in our midst," and "God has visited his people." Jesus was "moved to the depths of his heart" when he met with individuals and with groups of people. You may wonder why was Jesus so moved on this occasion when he met the widow and a crowded funeral procession on their way to the cemetery. Jesus not only grieved the untimely death of a young man, but he showed the depth of his concern for the woman who lost not only her husband, but her only child as well. This woman had lost not only her loved ones, but her future security and livelihood as well.
 
Jesus had the ability to restore life and to make a person whole again. Christ's physical touch and personal identification with the widow's loss of her only son not only showed the depths of his love and concern, but pointed to his desire to free everyone from the power of sin and even death itself. Jesus is Lord not only of the living but of the dead. He promises everyone who believes in him, shall have eternal life. Because he lives and will never die again, we also shall have abundant life with and in him both now and forever (JN 14).
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: When we face life's trails, misfortunes and moments of despair, remember God visits his people!
