Newsletter June 27th 2021 (13th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

In today’s Gospel story, Jesus gave himself fully to the “interruption” he encountered. He could have kept walking when the woman touched his clothing, but he attended to her. That was the call of the present moment for Jesus. when answering that call, he was doing God’s work, and the task he initially set out to accomplish did not suffer. Jairus had his daughter restored to him. There are times in life when we need to embrace the interruptions, rather than just driving on with our head down towards the goal we have set for ourselves.
We can misjudge where the real work lies.
We often need to come to a deeper appreciation that the interruptions are our work especially when they involve responding with compassion to the needs of others. When we set out on a journey, what happens on the way can be more important than arriving at our destination.
