At sunset all those who had friends suffering from diseases of one kind or another brought them to him, and laying his hands on each he cured them.

Jesus has just healed Simon's mother in law and word has spread. Friends of the sick and the possessed have brought them to Jesus for healing and deliverance.

The disciples interceded for Peter's mother in law. Friends of the sick interceded for them. In both cases Jesus responded and worked miracles in the lives of the suffering. Jesus works powerfully through intercession.

We were recently approached by a man in our parish who is friends with another who has just learnt he has advanced lung cancer. A non-smoker, this came out of the blue and is a shock to him and his family. We were asked to pray for the sick man and so went to his a home and did so.

It's still early days but we are continuing to ask for a miracle. Today's Gospel is a timely reminder that Jesus loves working through the prayer of friends.

Lord Jesus we lift up Vincent again to you and ask that you heal him of his cancer. We ask for a peace beyond understanding for Doris and the children as they travel with Vincent through the valley of the shadow of death.
Little Flower please pray for us.
