Jesus cures a deaf mute in this Sunday’s reading and arouses astonishment in the crowd. (Gospel) But would the fame of these miracles really reveal God’s love for the world and its peoples? Jesus thought not. In Mark Jesus stopped the miracles and began a new phase of his mission. He turned his face toward Jerusalem. And the cross.
This Sunday at Mass, let us ask ourselves whether the intimate presence of God is part of what we desire in our own lives. Do we know that Christ is deeply involved with us? Do we let his love flow into us and through us to others, or must it just fight its way through?
Let’s pray to hear, as the deaf man finally could.
Please join us at Mass as we celebrate this holy season and find ways we can be inspired by Jesus’s love.
Pray to hear
