Sep. 13, 2016 (St. John Chrysostom)

“[Jesus] was moved with pity…” With the death of her husband and now her son, the widow from Nain was now abandoned in the society of her time. She might as well be dead herself. Jesus was moved to do something to restore her. She was truly “voiceless,” the meaning in Hebrew of the word for widow. How much do we do to help the most vulnerable in our society today?
