03-17-15 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

March 17, 2015
(St. Patrick, Bishop)
At the healing waters of the Pool of Bethesda, a man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years.  When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been ill for a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be well?”  The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; while I am on my way, someone else gets down there before me.”  Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your mat, and walk.”  Immediately the man became well, took up his mat, and walked.  Jn 5:1-16

Oh, stop your belly-aching!

What are you really looking for, a healing or just a bunch of attention?  Sometimes, beloved, we tend to lose focus on what we’re really looking for and settle for the ever pitiable attention our illness attracts.  Jesus says, “Rise,” pick up that cross of yours and move on with LIFE!  We all have something we can belly-ache about – but nobody really wants to hear it anyway.  So, together let’s rise out of our self-pity and become what God really wants us to be . . . His beloved children!
