On Today’s Gospel

Posted: February 11, 2013 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections


Do we seek Jesus only for physical healing and neglect the healing for our souls? Do we seek Him only for our physical well being and needs and not for His word?

Do we care enough to do whatever it takes to tend to our sick, even carrying them at times to seek medical attention?

Jesus shows us today just how much He loves us.  He shows that we too should be touched by mercy and moved by love. Let us seek Him first in whatever we say and do so that, so that we too can be touched by mercy and moved by love for others. Amen

GOSPEL Mark 6:53–56

After making the crossing to the other side of the sea, Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret and tied up there. As they were leaving the boat, people immediately recognized him. They scurried about the surrounding country and began to bring in the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was. Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed.
