I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflection for January 15, Wednesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time, Mark 1:29-39

+ + + + +  + +
My Reflection:
There was a family who had a bed ridden mother for years. Being in such situation her husband and children confined her in a room within their house. The sick mother was wondering why they isolated her with her caregiver. Deep in her heart she was wishing for a daily visit even a quick peek from her husband and children. But they rarely did.

When Jesus was told that Simon’s mother-in-law was sick with a fever, He immediately approached her and grasp her hand. As if to say that I’m here for you and I’m concerned with your wellbeing.  Then she was healed by Jesus before they left her.

We must never underestimate the power of a visit or even a quick visit to a sick relative or friend. It could do wonders for their wellness of course we are not Jesus thus we will not be able to cure them physically. But it still can do wonders for them on the level of their emotions and morale.

Jesus is showing us the way on what to do when somebody is sick. Therefore we must follow, let us visit and give hope to the sick. It will do them good and on our part, of course it will do us good also for the reason that we are doing what Jesus wants us to do. - Marino J. Dasmarinas1
