Rising from death the son of the widow of Nain

In today’s Gospel the LORD JESUS is approaching a city called Nain, and Nain means joy.  The LORD JESUS entered this city of Nain but although it means joy HE found a very sad seen.  HE found a funeral procession and the deceased was the only son for a widow in that city.  A very tough situation in a city whose name is supposed to means joy.  The LORD JESUS went into the city and approached the grieving widow and HE had compassion for her and said “Luke 7:13 And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, Do not weep. “And HE went forward and touched the bier and said to the young deceased man   “Luke 7:14-15 And He came and touched the bier. And the ones who bore him stood still. And He said, Young man, I say to you, Arise! And the one who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He delivered him to his mother.” 
Today’s question is: what have I got to do with this story which is for a young dead man who was brought back to life?
This wonderful beautiful story is my story and yours, it concerns me and you since        “Rom 15:4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, so that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.”
This dead man is me and you, and this city of Nain is the world in which we live.  I and you are dead and the Holy Bible says “Eph 2:1 And He has made you alive, who were once dead in trespasses and sins,”
The world in which we live is Nain and Nain means joy, but we have heard the story, where is the joy in it?  The LORD JESUS went into Nain and found a funeral, sadness and a grieving widow; this is the world in which we live.  I and you are living in a world which name looks like joyful but it has no joy in it.  The wise King Solomon says         “Ecclesiastes 1:14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.” A world about which the LORD JESUS said to the Samaritan woman “John 4:13 Jesus answered and said to her, whoever drinks of this water shall thirst again,”
The LORD JESUS did not come to the world only to preach and talk but HE came to make the carried dead sits and alive again, HE came to give him life, to give me and you life                    “John 10:28 And I give to them eternal life, and they shall never ever perish, and not anyone shall pluck them out of My hand.”
This young man when he was given life, it appeared on him.  
Let us go back to the story, when the LORD JESUS called that young man with this joyful call “Luke 7:14 Young man, I say to you, Arise!”  What has happened to the young man?  “Luke 7:15 And the one who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He delivered him to his mother.”
Sat up spoke and was delivered to his mother.
1- Sat up: the situation has changed from a dead man carried over the shoulders, to a man with a will, sitting up, sitting with the LORD GOD at HIS feet, he has a new life and a new will.
2- Spoke: speaking is the communication with the LORD GOD “Psalm 45:1 My heart is overflowing with a good matter; I speak of my works to the King; my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.”  If you get the new life your situation changes and you start to have a dialogue and a companionship with the LORD GOD.
3- Lastly HE delivered him to his mother: the Church is the mother, just like the baby who goes to his mother to be fed, the faithful is fed by the Church through its Holy Sacraments.
The loving LORD JESUS approaches everyone who is in pain or sorrow; HE is calling for everyone who is dead to give him Eternal life.
Are you in pain and sorrow?  The LORD JESUS is approaching you.  Amen
