Sharing the Word for February 7, 2022 – Fifth Week in Ordinary Time – Year 2

Monday of the Fifth Week in Ordinary Time

February 7, 2022
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Mark 6:53-56

“All who touched him got well.” Two things seem to be required: 1) the accessibility of Christ–the crowds came “to wherever they heard that he was”; and 2) our outreach to touch him.

Christ is accessible to us today in many ways: in the Church, in the Scriptures, in the local worshipping community, in the poor and the needy, in the Eucharist, in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, in prayer, in the company of other believers, Jesus is accessible.

If we are not healed of our ills the problem is not Christ’s but ours for not reaching out to be in touch with him. It might be well to ask ourselves today where we find Christ and how we reach out to him.
