Thursday, July 13 0 St. Henry € Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give. Matthew 10:8
Many a physician knows the need to be humanly present to those who are suffering. Healing is as sacramental as it is personal. I wonder if Jesus would give science its due, and then ask again that we go into the world to be present to those who are hurting-estranged from their humanity because so few have treated them humanly. No' amount of gold, silver, possessions or medicine can make one person present to another. Human presence, inspired by faith, is a gift which shines as bright as it is unencumbered.
Travel lightly this day. Allow the Lord to be present through you.
