Wednesday 6th Week of the Year

Today’s Mass Readings

Wednesday 6th Week of the Year.

Mark 8:22-26.

Sometimes our healing takes time.

Jesus knew the blind man needed extra attention,
so he took him outside the village
away from all distractions
and healed his blindness in stages.

Let us never give up on Jesus or ourselves
when things aren’t perfect.

Conversion is a long and slow process.

We won’t see everything clearly at once.

We have to give ourselves and others time to change.

The one constant is that Jesus is with us
and loves us just as we are today.

Embrace that love for yourself today.

Sit with Jesus in a quiet place
away from all distractions
and let him rub his spittle into the eyes of your soul.

If you find that you need more of His love and attention,
let Him lay his hands on you again and again.

With each touch let the hurt and sin
that is causing your blindness to be drawn like a magnet
into His sacred wounds.

Every hurt in our past, every sin we have committed
prostrates itself to Jesus.

Choose life.

Choose to be healed and forgiven.

Go off with Jesus as many times as it takes.

Never give up on Jesus.
