St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

January 31

"Seeing their faith Jesus said to the man 'you are forgiven'.'"

In the story of the paralysed man we tend to focus on the man and forget his friends. It is their faith, not the sick man's that Jesus responds to. The Church needs to be a community of love and faith lifting up needy people to God and so bringing healing to them.

Lord, grant to those who suffer, courage and patience and hope. May our friendship and support transform their suffering. Amen.
