Jesus Heals Many
And when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and began to serve him. That evening they brought to him many who were oppressed by demons, and he cast out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.”


To all my Catholic brothers, I must point out that Peter was married and he is the first Pope of the Catholic church.  So why the call for celibacy?  I won't jiggle the blade, but it should provide some food for thought in regards to priest not being able to marry.  The big issue is not over Peter, but the healing of Peter's mother-in-law.  We see Jesus' divine power and authority in healing the sick.  We also see him healing and casting out demons.  Matthew makes a direct connect to the fulfillment of prophesy as found in Isaiah 53:4.  Jesus is our Messiah!


I pray: O Lord, keep hope alive in my heart, that no sickness can separate me from Your love. Amen.
