Dear Friend in the Lord,
Crowds’ Faith in Jesus: In today’s Gospel, great crowds were clamouring for Jesus to cure them. Ponder on, “Do we also ‘clamour’ for Jesus because we need to be healed or want our problems solved, hurts wiped away . . .?” More importantly, do we also love Jesus sincerely regardless of the sacrifices and trials of our faith?
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Having made the crossing, Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret and tied up. No sooner had they stepped out of the boat than people 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 cured.
