Oct 6 – Jesus and the Widow of Nain | A Message for Parents

God cares for us especially while we struggle, and struggles affect parents and children alike. In today's Gospel, we hear about the widowed mother from Nain, who encounters Jesus during the funeral procession for her only son, who had just passed away. What happened when Jesus saw her and stopped the funeral procession shows us first of all, how much compassion the Lord had for her! St. Luke specifically tells us that Jesus had compassion on her – not only for losing her son, but that she would be an outcast in society and dependent upon financial support from others.
