touch

The readings proclaimed on Tuesday reminds me of the favorite print I own: Michaelangelo’s Creation of Adam.

Jesus is so intimately in love with us that he touches us to bring about healing. The woman afflicted with the hemorrhage wanted to touch the Lord’s cloak and her faith saved her. In the same proclamation, the Lord enters the house of the daughter sleeping and awakes her from death.

That same Jesus is still with us today. Just as God reaches with power and authority to enliven Adam, he touches us with the Bread of Life, to nourish us and send us forth on mission. The mission to work for justice and charity. We are all called to a vocation of holiness for the sake of the Kingdom. Dare to let God touch you in the Eucharist, the Word, and in works of justice and charity.

I stumbled across this on tumblr and found it fitting.
