February 9 – Epiphany V – Our Lord glories in hearing humankind’s cries of distress (Isaiah 58:8-9). His salvation prepares us not to hide ourselves from our own flesh (Isaiah 58:7), particularly our gestating children and aging relatives. We need not take refuge in using death as a solution, because Jesus does the hiding for us (1 Corinthians 2:7) – hiding life’s preciousness even behind surprise pregnancies and terminal diagnoses.
