“Yet it was our pain that he bore, our sufferings he endured. We thought of him as stricken, struck down by God and afflicted, But he was pierced for our sins, crushed for our iniquity. He bore the punishment that makes us whole, by his wounds we were healed.”
– Isaiah 53:4-5
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
All of us have wounds. Things we’ve done, things that have been done to us, addictions, unforgiveness, etc. We maintain and hold fast to these wounds when we should offer them to God and allow Him to heal us.
Fr. Henri Nouwen said,”in our woundedness, we can be a source of life for others.” Let us spend some time in prayer this week, asking God to help us offer our wounds to Him and asking Him how we can use them to be a source of life for others.
