Mark 1, 29-39-fb

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 1, 29-39

As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once. He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

That evening, at sunset, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons. And the whole city was gathered around the door. And he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.
In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed. And Simon and his companions hunted for him. When they found him, they said to him, ‘Everyone is searching for you.’ He answered, ‘Let us go on to the neighbouring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do.’ And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.

Seek God

1) He left the synagogue. The importance of prayer in Jesus’s life is above everything. Prayer is the core, the center. We must always make time to pray, to enter the chapel and spend a while in silence and prayer. Find your space and your moment. In prayer, you find your strength for everything that you have to face in the day. Prayer is your place and your moment to find answers to many of your questions. Silence is the key.

2) He took her by the hand. Jesus heals. It is a beautiful gesture, His taking her hand and raising her up. This shows that Christ never leaves you alone. He is always by your side and He picks you up. Do you know? We do not want you to fall and we do not want you to be knocked down in this life. Beyond what happens or has happened to you, we want to tell you that we are here to take you by the hand and help you up. You are not alone. You have a lot to give and offer to this world. We will help you and pick you up. We don’t want you to think you are alone.

3) He went to other places. The missionary attitude is to go out looking for others. Today, take that missionary attitude. Go visit a person who needs you; you could even send him a message asking how he’s doing. You could send a Gospel meditation to that person who you know is distant from God. Or take time to pray for that person you know needs it. Come on, go out! Don’t get stuck in those comfortable places where you want to stay. We have to go out for the mission.

God bless you in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Heaven is our goal!
