Tenth Sunday of Ordinary Time June 5, 2016

This week’s Gospel tells us about Jesus helping a woman at a very sad time in her life. Her only son had died, and we are told that she was a widow. So her husband was dead too. Jesus was filled with great pity and said to the woman, “Do not cry.” Jesus stopped the procession and said loudly, “Young man, get up!” At once the young man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus brought him to his mother. The woman and the crowd were filled with wonder and began to praise God. Soon everyone had heard about the marvelous thing which Jesus had done.

1. Before Jesus performed his miracle, the woman was all alone, her family had died. Can you think of a time when you felt all alone? Can you describe how it felt?
2. Can you remember any of the other times when Jesus changed the sadness of death into the joy of life again? (Hint: one was a little girl and another was a good friend of his.)
