For the sick and the suffering

Thứ năm - 08/02/2018 14:36
Remember us, Lord, as you favor your people.
I would like to begin today’s reflection with a prayer: O God, your Son accepted our sufferings to teach us the virtue of patience in human illness. Hear the prayers we offer for our sick sisters and brothers. May all who suffer pain, illness or disease realize that they are chosen to be saints, and know that they are joined to Christ in His suffering for the salvation of the world, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
The sick people of Jesus’ day were often assumed to be on God’s wrong side and as such were often excluded from society. Healing was rare. While medicine is now a science able to help many people recover from illness, it is still true that a caring, human touch can also have a healing effect.
In Mark’s Gospel: Jesus praises a Gentile woman for her strong faith and for her affectionate love. She made the misery of her child her own and she was willing to suffer rebuff in order to obtain healing for her loved one. She stayed the course with persistence. Her faith grew in contact with Jesus Christ. She began with a request and she ended on her knees in prayer to our living God. Any one who ever seeks Jesus with faith—whether Jew or Gentile—was refused His help. In our Responsorial Psalm today these word brings us great hope: Remember us, Lord, as you favor your people.
Points to Pray and Ponder: What is the real miracle in all this?
