Pastor's Column

July 2018

Dear Parish Family:

As ridiculous as it might sound, Jesus is aware of all who seek to touch him – even in the midst of a throng of people. Thus, when the woman with the flow of blood touched the hem of his garment, Jesus knew that power had poured out from him to her. This story was told by Mark in the middle of another account of healing – that of a little girl. Each narrative is graphic and a reminder that our God wants to reach deeply into every fiber of our being. Touch is essential to the healing process; but, unfortunately, at times the abuse of touch has been the cause of unending pain and shame. The Scriptures this weekend remind us that we, the Church, are called to be a healing presence in the midst of an alienated and tormented world. We exercise this gift primarily by listening and identifying with the suffering of our neighbor. In time, we can invite them to the fellowship of the larger community and encourage them to embrace the healing sacraments of reconciliation, anointing, and Eucharist. Recall our words just prior to Holy Communion: “O Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed!” As the summer progresses, I will reflect more in depth on the mystery of the Eucharist and the gift of healing. Have a blessed week and a happy
Independence Day!

Yours in Christ,
Father Bill Foley
