Dear Friend in the Lord,
Jesus Heals: In today’s Gospel, Jesus healed Peter’s mother-in-law and many others. Through the Holy Spirit, Jesus continues to heal and liberate us from the evil spirits and our sins. However, is our love for Jesus sincere and wholesome, or superficial, selfish-seeking and over focused on our needs?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Luke 4:38-42a, 43
Leaving the synagogue he went to Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever and they asked him to do something for her. Leaning over her he rebuked the fever and it left her. And she immediately got up and began to wait on them.
At sunset all those who had friends suffering from diseases of one kind or another brought them to him, and laying his hands on each he cured them. Devils too came out of many people, howling, ‘You are the Son of God.’ But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak because they knew that he was the Christ.
When daylight came he left the house and made his way to a lonely place.
The crowds wanted to prevent him from leaving them, but he answered, ‘I must proclaim the Good News of the kingdom of God to the other towns too, because that is what I was sent to do.’
