Weekly Devotion – October 25th
Bartimaeus, the blind man in Sunday’s Gospel, refused to be silent until Jesus called for him. He called to the Lord, asking to be healed and to recover his sight. This is a great example for us in our lives. We may be in need of healing, whether spiritual, emotional, or physical, and it is up to us to ask God for our needs. By presenting ourselves to the Lord in a contrite and humble manner, we open ourselves up to His healing power and come to discover the greatness of His compassion and love.
We pray together: St. Jude, give us the courage to ask for God’s healing when we are in need, and give hope to all of those suffering from illness and disease.
