On leaving the synagogue
Jesus entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever.
They immediately told him about her.
He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up.
Then the fever left her and she waited on them.
When it was evening, after sunset,
they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons.
The whole town was gathered at the door.
He cured many who were sick with various diseases,
and he drove out many demons,
not permitting them to speak because they knew him.
Rising very early before dawn,
he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.
Simon and those who were with him pursued him
and on finding him said, “Everyone is looking for you.”
He told them, “Let us go on to the nearby villages
that I may preach there also.
For this purpose have I come.”
So he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons
throughout the whole of Galilee.
I remembered when I was in elementary school I used to go to my mother's office after class. Every Wednesday, we go to church for the Mother of Perpetual Help. This is one of my childhood memories that mold me to who I am today. My mother is bearing an illness for years. Her devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help helped her in her day-to-day life.
I am not embarrassed to tell anyone of my devotion to our Mother Mary. I have been a witness of her blessedness not just through my mother but through my whole family. It is never been a big deal to put your devotion to our Mother whether you're a boy, a girl, young, old, a husband, or a wife.
Let us pray.
Pray for us.
As what is written in the gospel. Jesus calmly heals those who are sick. With faith in Him, nothing is really impossible.
