23rd Sunday Ordinary Time – What are Friends for???

Friends of the DeafA bunch of friends of the person who was deaf brought him/her to Jesus to be healed. They themselves had heard the great deeds of God worked by him (from the wild man – Mark, chapter 5). So here they all were.

It’s a good image for us today who believe we have been touched and encouraged in our faith in Jesus Christ – whom can we bring for healing? Bishops, priests, family, friends, colleagues – all to hear the key sayings: “You are my beloved!” and “The Son of Man must be rejected, killed, and be raised on the third day.”

Don’t we all need to hear those words anew today? I do.
