Readings for Today

Touch. Contact. Relationship. Trust. There are so many ways to think about what we encounter in the gospel. If only we can touch the cloak of Jesus.  If only Jesus would touch the girl and pray for her, she will be healed. If we only come in contact with Jesus, then we are made whole.

If there is a common thread in all of the sacraments, it is the encounter with God.  And just as the gospels describe concrete encounters with Jesus, the means of grace in the sacraments come in very concrete ways.  Water cleanses. Oil heals.  Promises unite. Bread means life.  How will God come to you today?
