Who are your stone rollers? Thank God for sending them to you - Daily Bible Reflections April 4,2015

STONE ROLLERS
 
When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back; it was very large. – Mark 16:3-4
 
       I tell people my driver’s license has a restriction: I’m only allowed todrive up to Alabang. That’s just my excuse for not driving far. It becomes a stone block when we have events in distant places. My usual stone roller is Emy, who’s so generous in driving for our group.
       There are many stones that hinder our path. Most are small like my “driving disability.” Some are medium-sized like the difficulty of my co-servant in carrying around her son with cerebral palsy. Her stone roller was a Caring Group mate who bought the boy a wheelchair.
       Others are extremely large that they seem immovable. James Ward is a homeless youth who got accepted to Howard University but couldn’t afford the tuition. His stone roller was Jessica Sutherland, a volunteer at the homeless shelter, who launched an online movement to raise his tuition money. The campaign spread like wildfire. It was picked up by the Ellen DeGeneres show where James was given a $25,000 check and a $10,000 gift certificate.
       Like the women who visited Jesus’ tomb, we wonder how we can move the obstacles that face us. Trust that God always sends angels to roll away those stones. Lella M. Santiago (lellams88@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Who are your stone rollers? Thank God for sending them to you.
 
Lord, thank You for the people You send to help carry my load.
 
St. Isidore of Seville, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
