In our gospel today, a group of men go to great lengths to bring a paralyzed man to Jesus.
They can’t get into the door of the house where Jesus is because of the crowd, so they drop him down through the roof to meet Jesus, and he is healed. This determination is a reflection of the faith these men have. They all agreed they saw incredible things that day.
It reminds me of one of the principles of Cursillo, where we bring our friends to Christ. I have been blessed to have a group of friends who have done the same for me many times over the last 18 years.
I too have seen incredible things when people care enough to bring their friends to Christ, no matter what the obstacle.
This Gospel may cause us to reflect if we have the faith and determination of these men.
Is there someone we know that needs to be carried to Christ?
Do we give up too easily when there are hurdles or resistance?
What obstacles are we willing to overcome to be like these men?
De Colores, Deacon Kevin
