The Raising of the Widow’s Son

“The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother.” (Luke 7:15)

By raising the widow’s son, Jesus showed his mercy to restore life in our most cherished relationships.

Many of us have relationships with loved ones that are a source of grief and commotion. The raising of the widow’s son ought to give us hope that Jesus can have pity on us too and bring them back to life.

Today, let’s pray that by strengthening our bond with Jesus, he can mend our relationships. Let’s pray that he gives us soft hearts and humility to let him tell us “do not weep” when he gives us our loved ones back.
