Weekly Devotion – July 2ndWeekly Devotions
Faith is powerful, as we heard during Sunday’s Gospel. The faith of Jairus brought Jesus into his home and saved his daughter from death. The faith of the woman with chronic bleeding brought her healing and a renewed lease on life.
These accounts are given to us in the Gospel so that our faith might be strengthened and so that we, too, might receive healing and be brought to the fullness of life.
And the faith that guides us now will one day give way to sight. We will no longer need faith when we behold our God and see Him face to face. Then will our faith be vindicated. Then will we reach our faith’s goal: our salvation.
We pray together: Remain at my side, St. Jude, to keep me strong when faced with temptations, fears, and doubts. May your loving presence guide me on my journey to see the face of God.
