The First Reading and the Gospel speak of God’s life-giving power in the restoration of two sons to their widowed mothers. Right now, you and I are called to be another Christ to the widows and hurting people of our day. We need to see the needs and sorrow in our world. We need to reach out to the hurting people of our day. We need to reach out-even if others won’t understand or agree with our actions. We need to bring life to loss and death. Jesus’ ministry of compassion and pity must continue through us. What are you doing to be “other Christs” to those in need?
