TUESDAY 4th WEEK OF LENT GOSPEL Jn 5:1-3,5-16

When the sick man in the gospel narrates to Jesus his desires, efforts and failures, Jesus rewards him immediately with these words: "stand up! Pick up you mat and walk!" The person who long for healing, received not only the healing but gained the healer too. In Jesus we have the ultimate healer and inorder to experience the healing that he offer us, we need to stand up in faith and leave the past behind us once and for all. The helplessness of the man at the pool was overcome by God's mercy and power. The Lord approaches each of us with the same probing question: "Do you really want to be  changed, to be set free from the power of sin and to be transformed into my holiness?" What is my answer to him?
