E-198 Rectora Note

Faith in Action-it’s more than just the theme for E198-it’s a lifestyle. Luke 8 tells the story of a woman who’s had a blood disorder for twelve years. Imagine being this unclean woman crouched in the dirt as Jesus passes by with His crowd of followers. She thought to herself-if I could only touch the hem of His garment, no one would ever know. But Jesus knew. He felt it immediately and you can better believe that she felt it too. Not only was she no longer unclean but Jesus looked her in the eyes and told her “Daughter, your faith has made you well, go in peace.” How many women on the Emmaus weekend, team and pilgrims alike, have waited a lifetime to hear those precious words from Jesus. All we need to do is put our faith in action and reach out to Him. He will meet us where we are. He did it then and He will do it again this weekend. We covet your prayers for the team and pilgrims that God is calling by name for this mountaintop experience.
