Dear Friend in the Lord,

Seeking for Jesus” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, great crowds were “seeking for Jesus”; to cure their illnesses, and free them from all evil spirits’ possessions.  Ponder on, “It is important to seek God’s Compassionate Love and Healings.  However, do we seek God in order to deepen our love for Him, or do we only seek to be healed?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 6:53-56

Having made the crossing, Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret and moored there. When they disembarked people at once recognised him, and started hurrying all through the countryside and brought the sick on stretchers to wherever they heard he was.

And wherever he went, to village or town or farm, they laid down the sick in the open spaces, begging him to let them touch even the fringe of his cloak. And all those who touched him were saved.
