Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Nothing should stop us following Christ

In the gospel today, Jesus resolutely journeys to Jerusalem where crucifixion and death await him. He, like the suffering servant of Yahweh, takes on the pain, for he knows, that is the way the love of the Father is to be manifested.

Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Restoring dignity and life to Israel

The passage proposes two miracles: one, the healing of a sick woman and the other, raising the daughter of Jairus. These miracle stories carry hidden signs. 
 
The evangelist highlight the number twelve. The unnamed woman is impure for twelve years, while the age of Jairus’ daughter is also twelve. Twelve is the symbol of the people of “Israel”, which is a feminine name.

Constant and generous self-sacrifice

Matthew wrote his gospel in a time of persecution. The disciples have often had the experience that, to remain faithful to Christ, they had to accept the breaking of ties with the people who matter most. The rabbis had made the decision to expel the Christians from the synagogues. They had ordered that those who adhered to the Christian faith be considered heretical, be disowned by their families.
