A reflection on Raising The Son Of The Widow at Nain by Deacon David Hockwalt. Jesus raises from the dead the only son of the widow of Nain. Nain was a small village 25 miles from Capernaum. It was at the city gate that Jesus met a funeral procession. He stopped the procession. The widow had no male advocate.  She was in financial and legal ruin. Jesus was moved with pity for the widow. God cares deeply for us. The grace he gives is the help we need at a particular moment. The grace comes from his initiative, and it is free and undeserved.

By raising the widow’s son from the dead, he immediately rectified her situation. Fear seized them all, and they glorified God. Just as Jesus raised the son from the dead, we are called to use the grace and charisms we have received. Come, Holy Spirit, fill me with your grace and fill me with your charisms.

DEACON DAVID HOCKWALT was ordained a Permanent Deacon in the Diocese of San Bernardino in 2012. He continues in active ministry today and is the spiritual advisor to the vicariate Life in the Spirit team.

We pray that today may be a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this reflection. Magnificat, taken from Luke 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this reflection will help us all better understand that we are indeed children of God, made in His image and likeness. We want to come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me, and holy is His Name!
