Presence – How We Protect Ourselves

We dress for the occasion depending on what we are doing. For example, a person may dress in blue genes for work in construction, or a doctor performing the surgery will dress in a gown. We wear our team’s jersey at a hockey game. If we are gardening, our clothes differ from our sleepwear. Clothes tell everyone a bit about ourselves and who we are at that given moment.

When Jesus and his disciples landed their boat in today’s gospel, people recognized Him immediately. In no time, everyone from everywhere “laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed.”

In Holy Communion, Jesus clothes Himself in the appearance of bread and wine. In today’s gospel, the people recognized Jesus immediately. We all must acknowledge Christ’s Real Presence in the Consecrated Host. My outward appearance needs to be a witness to others. I bear in my body, mind, and soul Jesus in all His humanity and Divinity.

Gospel Challenge:
A good examination of my dress, speech, and how I present myself can be a healing, inspiring, and consoling Presence of my Savior to others. If He can heal through a tassel on a robe, what more can He do through His brother, sister, friend, you, and me? Let’s all dress appropriately.

Love Your Neighbor:
Please join me in praying for all baptized Catholics to be faithful to Jesus in the Holy Mass every weekend. Hail Mary, full of grace…

Mother Mary, “I am yours now and forever. Through you and with you, I always want to belong completely to Jesus.” The Surrender Novena – InHeartland. https://inheartland.com/pages/the-surrender-novena

Peace be with you.
