Today’s Gospel from the Mass (Mark 1:29-39) describes yet another healing miracle by Jesus Christ:

[30] Now Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever, and immediately they told him of her.   [31] And he came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her; and she served them.

As always, we should accept what is presented to us in the Gospel, understand it and attempt to personalize it:

We can take great comfort that even today, we can appeal to Jesus Christ for healing and comfort during times of illness.  What a blessing!
