The healing power of Jesus

The healing power of Jesus
by Father Bernard Holzer, aa



During the first days of the week, the liturgy invites us to listen to the Gospel according to Saint Luke (Chapter 4). Saint Luke offers us to accompany Jesus in his healing ministry.


On the day of the Sabbath, he did not perform a miracle in Nazareth. But the following week, in the City of Capernaum at the crossroad of the nations, he cast out a demon and then, in front of the synagogue and the house of Simon Peter, healed his mother-in-law with a fever. At sunset, he cured a lot of sick people with various diseases.


Let us reread and meditate on this chapter. Imagine the different scenes. Let us become actors in these stories... Note that Jesus cannot heal when there is no welcome, when there is no faith, when one remains selfish, without compassion and love for others, without accepting the Good News.


So when we pray for Jesus to come and heal us and those we love, let us open our hearts and hands. Let us ask for the grace of faith. Let us become like children confident in his parents.


O Lord, teach us how to love, to be compassionate and kind like you!


“The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness.

The Lord is good to all and compassionate toward all his works…

The Lord is faithful in all his words and holy in all his works.

The Lord lift up all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down.” – Psalm 145
