13th Sunday in Ordinary Time- Issue 56

Hello <<First Name>>,

Do you ever say to yourself "go for it"; "just do it!"; "go on, go on, go on!"?

An inner voice tells you to take a leap... and it might have to tell you more than once!

What courage it takes to do that something;
what trust you place in yourself or others in that moment;
what joy or relief you experience when it is over. 

This week, have a little faith in yourself in those moments of wondering or doubt.
Have faith in Jesus as you place your trust in Him.
Take time to notice the difference.

FAITH GATHERINGS

13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Who touched me?” Jesus asked. It seems a strange request with crowds milling around. Many people brushed against him but the woman made contact in a different way.
The same can happen in our relationships. We brush against many people but make real contact only with a few. Who are the people you have touched, and who has touched you? What difference has this made to you and to them?
Jesus also said to the woman, ‘Your faith has made you well’. What difference does it make to you that you have faith? In what ways does your faith make you well?


PRAYER
Help us, Lord, to know when to reach out, when to touch and welcome the excluded.
Help us to know when to set aside received practices which hinder the Gospel in our day.
May this woman’s example gives us courage! Amen.
(adapted from reflections on the Gospel by Kieran O’Mahony OSA, www.tarsus.ie )
Tune in to the streaming service before 11:30am Mass to hear the welcome.
The Scripture readings are available daily and for Sunday.
