My Reflections for Thursday January 24, Mark 3:7-12 (Saint Francis de Sales, Bishop and Doctor)

Gospel:
Jesus withdrew toward the sea with his disciples. A large number of people followed from Galilee and from Judea. Hearing what he was doing, a large number of people came to him also from Jerusalem, from Idumea, from beyond the Jordan, and from the neighborhood of Tyre and Sidon. He told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd,  so that they would not crush him. He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases were pressing upon him to touch him. And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him and shout, “You are the Son of God.” He warned them sternly not to make him known.

My Reflections:
Many were pressing themselves towards Jesus because of His healing touch. But it’s not all the time that Jesus will heal us, there will be times that we will still be sick no matter how hard we push ourselves towards Jesus.

Let us not lose faith in Jesus even if He doesn’t heal us physically He has His own reasons. Perhaps it’s a test of our faith; perhaps Jesus wants us to journey with Him in His suffering towards Calvary.

The more that healing seems elusive that more that we must intensely follow Jesus. - Marino J. Dasmarinas1
