HE HEALS THE BROKEN HEARTED AND
BINDS UP THEIR WOUNDS
 
We cannot work miracles… Nevertheless, we can be friendly and cheerful; lifting up the spirits of others. We can listen and pray!
 
Today’s Gospel tells us that Jesus, “Cured many who were sick with various diseases.” He could. He was God. How can we follow the healing Christ? We cannot work miracles; we cannot cure with the touch of a hand, a word, and a gesture. Nevertheless, we can share in the healing work of Jesus. We can visit and pray for the sick. We may feel helpless, even discouraged in the face of our pain and suffering and need which cannot relieve, much less cure. Jesus promised heaven to those who call on the ill. “ I was sick and you visited me… Come on in.” Even the Old Testament urges us: “ Be not slow to visit the sick; for by these things thou shalt be confirmed in love” (Eccles.7:39). We can be friendly; cheerful; lift up the spirits of someone; we can listen; pray!
 
Who are we really taking our troubles to? Jesus’ disciples freely brought their troubles to him because they found him ready and able to deal with any difficulty, affliction, or sickness which they encountered. When Simon Peter brought Jesus to his home, his mother-in-law was instantly healed because Jesus heard Simon Peter’s prayer. We need to allow Jesus to be the Healer in our life, family, and community. God’s healing restores us not only to health but also to active service and care of others.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Prayer is also a key for caring for those who are ill and needy. “We can pray for those who need of prayer today; and we can pray tomorrow and each day for each other.  May we join with Jesus in doing God’s service to others?
