JESUS HEALS A MAN WITH WITHERED RIGHT HAND

Today’s Gospel Reading: Luke 6:6-11 – TWENTY-THIRD WEEK OF THE YEAR:  Monday, 10 September 2018

Jesus probes more deeply into the meaning of Sabbath observance and of religion generally. His statement that the Sabbath is to preserve life speaks not only to its obvious celebrative, restorative function in enabling us to regroup emotionally and spiritually. His wider reference is to religion generally. Its purpose is to restore life at the deepest levels.

It is in this light that the ascetic, penitential practices of the Church must be seen. They are meant to uncover those deep wells of spiritual energy within us that can be kept closed by the surface pleasures of hedonism.

The deep spring of our emotional and psychological well-being is spiritual.
