God’s touch

God has always been reaching out to us! Today He is reaching out personally to you!

Michaelangelo captured the scene in his famous painting of  God the Creator Father reaching out to Adam who represents humanity.

Mother St. Paul explains how God the Father reached down to touch each of  us at our creation:

“Our Lord Touched us when He created us to His own image; He could have created us to the image of the angels but no, He created us to His own – it was a touch.” Virginibus Christi p. 25

From Mary’s womb Unborn Jesus was reaching out to us, but we couldn’t see. Perhaps in a Michaelangelo moment, in Mary’s womb He extended His tiny unborn arm, hand, and finger towards each  of us.

Pope Pius XII tells us:

But the knowledge and love of our Divine Redeemer, of which we were the object from the first moment of His Incarnation, exceed all that the human intellect can hope to grasp. For hardly was He conceived in the womb of the Mother of God, when He began to enjoy the Beatific Vision, and in that vision all the members of His Mystical Body were continually and unceasingly present to Him, and He embraced them with His redeeming loveOn the Mystical Body of Christ, #75

As we remember this sad anniversary of Roe v Wade, let us realize that in the silent cries of the unborn He is reaching out to touch our hearts.

Let us reach out to touch Him for as St. Mark tells us:

As many as touched Him were made whole”  (Mk 6:56)
