My Reflection for Wednesday December 4, the First Week of Advent, Matthew 15:29-37

+ + + + + + +
Gospel: Matthew 15:29-37  
At that time: Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, went up on the mountain, and sat down there. Great crowds came to him, having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute, and many others. They placed them at his feet, and he cured them. The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind able to see, and they glorified the God of Israel.

Jesus summoned his disciples and said, “My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, for they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, for fear they may collapse on the way.” The disciples said to him, “Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place to satisfy such a crowd?” Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” “Seven,” they replied, “and a few fish.” He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied. They picked up the fragments left over–seven baskets full.

My Reflection:
What do we do when we are sick? Of course we go to the doctor, but have we thought of going to Jesus first? To go to Him in deep prayer to ask Him to cure us with His mighty healing power. Many of us perhaps have forgotten already that Jesus is the greatest healer who ever walked on this earth. That’s why we sometimes forget to go to Him first in deep prayer before we go to our doctors. 

I know of someone who was sick, yes she went to her doctor for her healing. Whenever I go to the Blessed Sacrament I always see her there in deep prayer. Communing with Jesus asking Jesus to heal her, I now see her cured going about with her normal life.

In our gospel, great crowds went to Jesus, with them were the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute, and many more sick people. They placed them at his feet, and he cured them. The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind able to see, and they glorified the God of Israel.

Whenever we are sick (Whatever it may be and no matter how grave it may be) let us always remember to go to Jesus first. And let us deeply pray to Him to heal us.

Do you always pray to Jesus?
