Life and death

Mourning a son who has died, or rejoicing for a daughter brought back to life, the readings today are full of emotion. All of us at some time have to face sickness and death. Some are lucky enough to make a recovery from illness. This is the lot of us who are human. The Lord says today “Do not be afraid, only have faith.” It can be a challenge at times to believe this. It is good to pray for the grace of faith and of peace at these times.
