Dear Friend in the Lord,
Faith – Miracles: In today’s Gospel, Jesus raised to life the daughter of an official. When we have a strong faith in God, miracles happen! Pray for the Holy Spirit’s Light to reveal to you the many miracles God has done for you. Without God’s Love and Mercy you would not be what you are today. Thank the Lord.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Matthew 9:18-19, 23-26
While Jesus was speaking, up came one of the officials, who bowed low in front of him and said, ‘My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her and her life will be saved.’ Jesus rose and, with his disciples, followed him.
When Jesus reached the official’s house and saw the flute-players, with the crowd making a commotion, he said, ‘Get out of here; the little girl is not dead; she is asleep.’ And they laughed at him. But when the people had been turned out he went inside and took the little girl by the hand; and she stood up. And the news of this spread all round the countryside.
