Ordinary Time, 28th Sunday. Did you hear what the Pope said? But did you understand what he meant? Yes, abortion and all kinds of other things are wrong, but this isn’t the Good News. The Good News is the incredible love of God that washes clean every sin, even abortion, divorce, sexual activity, everything. The Pope wants us speak more about Christ; he wants wounded people to meet the Healer. Today we ready how a man named Naaman discovers the healing power of God. More importantly, through his journey of healing, he discovers God Himself. We all have a part to play to help heal the wounds. Will you bring people to Jesus? (13 Oct 2013)
Want to go deeper?
- Read the story of Naaman for yourself in II Kings chapter 5.
- Take the time to read the Pope’s interview, A Big Heart Open to God , published 30 September 2013 in America Magazine.
- Read about the apparition of Mary at Fatima, Portugal on 13 October 1917.
Thanks to Fr. Robert Barron for some thoughts on Naaman.
