DG BookGospel: Mark 6:53-56
Having crossed the lake, they came ashore at Gennesaret, where they tied up the boat. As soon as they landed, people
recognized Jesus, and ran to spread the news throughout the countryside. Wherever he was, they brought to him the sick
lying on their mats; and wherever he went, to villages, towns or farms, they laid the sick in the marketplace, and begged
him to let them touch just the fringe of his cloak. And all who touched him were cured.

 

Reflection:

 

Compare the majesty, grandeur, and the awe-inspiring
presence of God in the Ark that Solomon brought to Jerusalem,
with the simplicity, ordinariness, familiarity, down-to-earthiness
Jesus displays in rubbing shoulders with the people
around him! If the Ark evoked fear and trembling, and no one
dared to touch the Ark because touching the Ark could get them
killed, as in the case of Uzzah (2 Sam 6:6-7), we see people milling
around Jesus pleading him to touch them and reaching out
and touching him and getting cured! What we witness is the
true kenosis (Phil. 2:6-8) of God for the sake of us, human beings:
the “I-Am-Who-Am” becoming Emmanuel, “God-with-Us”, the
Ark becoming Flesh, to dwell amidst us as one among us. The
fear-evoking presence of God in the Ark becomes the loveinspiring
touch of God in Christ. How has this kenosis transformed
our lives?
