04-19-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

April 19, 2017
(Easter Octave Wednesday)
When a crippled man saw Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked for alms.  But Peter looked intently at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” He paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them.  Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I do have I give you: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazorean, rise and walk.”  Then Peter took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles grew strong.  He leaped up, stood, and walked around . . .  Acts_3:1-10

Just as when Jesus healed people through their own faith, now the Apostles, who have faith strong enough to believe that healing is possible in the Name of Jesus, can heal – when the person being healed also has faith that it will be done.

But notice that Peter didn’t just say “be healed” and then walk away.  He also helped the person rise up to begin the healing journey.  You see, beloved, our healing prayers are not just magical incantations.  They must be accompanied with the works necessary to bring about that healing: a meal, a donation, a helping hand, a ride, or maybe even just a little quiet company.

These, along with our prayer “in the Name of Jesus,” is what will bring about the healing of our loved ones today.  We must love them through their infirmity, and God will do the rest – if it be His will!
