The centurior's Servant

The miracle of the healing of the servant of the centurion (Lk 7:1-10) is immediately followed by the raising of the son of the window of Nain (Lk 7:11-17).
St Luke gives the details of the situation: the mother was a widow; and that was her only son. So, the son, after the death of the father, remained the only companion and support for the woman. Now, he is dead! The situation must have thrown the woman into the abyss of hopelessness, making her to descend into the dungeon of sadness and sinking into the oasis of helplessness. God proved her true friend by restoring her happiness and by raising the son. Indeed, the One who is Life has power over death.
Just as he did for the woman, he is ever ready to turn our tear to laughter. We only need to turn to him with faith and hope.
Lastly, let us continue to foster bond of unity wherever we find ourselves, working together for the common good.
God loves you! God bless you!
