Jesus, M.D.

“Stand up and go; your faith has saved you.”  Luke 17:19

Reflection was based on this Sunday’s readings.

Sharing a beautiful reflection by Pope Benedict XVI on Faith …

“Faith means resisting the brute force that would otherwise pull us under.

Faith is a liberation of my I from its preoccupation with self.

Faith is a breaking out of the isolation that is the malady of my I.

Faith is a new Yes that becomes possible when we are touched by God.

Faith is the finding of a You who upholds me and gives me the promise of an indestructible love.

Faith means fellowship with him who has a power that draws us up,  holds us fast, and carries us safely over the elements of death.

To become a believer means to escape our own gravity.”
