Daily Bible Reflections - May 7,2013


FOR A GREATER GOOD

 
“It is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you.” – John 16:7
 
Terry Fox was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer that often starts near the knees. His right leg was amputated and replaced by an artificial leg. He endured 16 months of chemotherapy. Terry embarked on a 14-month training program so he could compete in a marathon to raise cancer awareness. His hospital experiences angered him because of how little money was dedicated to cancer research. He sought to raise C$1 for each of Canada’s 24 million people.
After 143 days and 5,373 kilometers, Terry was forced to end his run because his cancer returned. He had already raised C$1.7 million. On June 28, 1981, he passed away at the age of 22. On September 1981, the first Terry Fox Run was held. It has become an international event involving participants in over 60 countries. Over C$500 million has already been raised in his name.
Jesus’ return to the Father was necessary so the Holy Spirit would come. By doing so, Jesus could be present anytime and anywhere. Goodbyes are often painful but sometimes it’s necessary for a greater good to come. Christ’s death, as well as Terry’s, produced a greater fruit than when they were here on earth. Judith Concepcion (svp_jmc@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: When God takes something away from you, believe that He will replace it with something far better.
 
I may not understand Your ways, Lord, but I choose to trust that You know what’s best for me.
 
St. Rose Venerini, pray for us.
