The WORD in Other Words by Fr Roberto Alda Jr SVD (Germany) for Tuesday 4th Week of Lent
Jesus asks: “Do you want to be well?” God opens for us opportunities everyday to express to Him our innermost desire. He is very interested to know and to listen to our deepest needs. He asks you and me personally. God really cares. Are you aware of that?
Jesus says: “Rise, take up your mat, and walk.” With these words, Jesus cured the sick man immediately. He restored him back to his feet, and now, he can walk again. Jesus made him healthy. God’s word heals. Do you believe in God’s word?
Jesus warns: “… do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse may happen to you.” God healed and helped the man without asking from him anything in return. Now, God can help and heal you as well. He is good and generous. Do the same. Spread goodness from now on. Always help, lend a hand. Be generous. –
