Everyone in the crowd was trying to touch Him, because power came forth from Him and healed them all.  – Lk 6:29

Reflection. To this very day power goes out from Jesus and people are cured.  There are many kinds of cures, however.  Some take a long time to understand.  Sometimes the pain of life makes a person more humble and pliable.   Since we will all need a childlike spirit to enter the Kingdom, maybe God is doing us a favor by not giving us exactly what we want when we want it.  Maybe He is preparing us for a greater gift.

Prayer. Dear Jesus, I certainly need You and I want to please You.  Please cure me of my bodily ills as well as my spiritual sickness.  I trust You to heal me in Your own way.
