Today’s readings contain powerful messages of people being healed. By Jesus, by God, by the Apostles.
Because all of us are broken. Whether it’s visible or not.
I find that it’s much easier for me to have compassion when I remember that. Sure, I get caught up in my own drama, and lament difficulties in my life.
But it’s OK. We all have our struggles and our journey.
‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’ He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’ — Matthew 25:44-45
I understand from this passage that it matters how I treat others. I get that.
But perhaps there’s an implication that Christ is working His goodness through others as well. Am I paying attention to what I can learn from others?
We all, everyone of us, have the ability to heal each other. In the most amazing ways.
