Sunday Scripture

          The life we receive with Christ is everlasting.

Over the normal course of life,it most of us experience births and deaths among our loved ones. New life is usually a cause for joy; while we grieve at the death of someone special to us. However, our belief in Jesus Christ offers us a hope that transcends death and, if we persevere in faith, it will bring us to the joy of eternal life in heaven.

          In today's first reading, we hear that death is the result of evil. In the second reading, Paul teaches that those who are blessed with material goods should be generous, as God has been generous to them. In the Gospel, Jesus heals a woman. She simply touches his clothing, showing her great faith. Jesus also restores a child to life.
