This is being written before the Encounter School of Healing and Healing Service that took place on Friday and Saturday. It is our fervent prayer that a great movement of the Holy Spirit was unleashed by the weekend and that many fruits will grow in our parish and in all who attended.
Today’s Gospel closes with Moses saying, “he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.” All, in him, are alive. What does it mean for us now? Paul, in Ephesians 1:18-19, provides meaning: “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.” Pray these words in the first person – I pray that the eyes of my heart… – over and over, in belief and trust, and be fully alive.
