Refections – Restoring to Life

There’s nothing else that can put me at ease than coming home to our warm and cozy¬†abode at the end of a long day. After finishing up some meal prep for the week and a quick clean/declutter of the place so we don’t wake up to mess on a Monday morning, I sat down for a moment and had a flick through our Parish bulletin. I thought I’d share the below excerpt in case you wanted something to meditate and reflect upon.

Have a great week everyone. Good night!

We may not have the capacity to enact a mriaculous ‘resurrection’ as Jesus did with the widow’s son, but we certainly have the capacity and frequent opportunity to restore someone to life in the manner that Jesus restored the life of the widow.

Whenever we encounter someone who has been cast out by life circumstances or by the cruel actions of others, we have the capacity to restore them to a fuller life through our actions. We restore life when we restore dignity; when we refuse to participate in grinding someone down and instead extend a hand to help them up.

How can you extend a hand to help someone up this week?
