HEBREWS 12:4-7,11-15
In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of
shedding blood. You have also forgotten the exhortation addressed to
you as sons: "My son, do not disdain the discipline of the Lord or
lose heart when reproved by him; for whom the Lord loves, he
disciplines; he scourges every son he acknowledges." Endure your
trials as "discipline"; God treats you as sons. For what "son" is
there whom his father does not discipline? At the time, all discipline
seems a cause not for joy but for pain, yet later it brings the
peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who are trained by it. So
strengthen your drooping hands and your weak knees. Make straight
paths for your feet, that what is lame may not be dislocated but
healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for that holiness without
which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one be deprived of
the grace of God, that no bitter root spring up and cause trouble,
through which many may become defiled,

MARK 6:1-6
He departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by
his disciples. When the sabbath came he began to teach in the
synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished. They said, "Where
did this man get all this? What kind of wisdom has been given him?
What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands! Is he not the carpenter,
the son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and
Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at
him. Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his
native place and among his own kin and in his own house." So he was
not able to perform any mighty deed there, apart from curing a few
sick people by laying his hands on them. He was amazed at their lack
of faith. He went around to the villages in the vicinity teaching.

Blood is one symbol of life. When a person is bleeding, it means that
life is being wasted away. We are this woman who is bleeding. We are
bleeding from problems and sufferings we cannot bear. All humanity
carries these problems, but only few carry them with a glorious
meaning. Christ tells us in very strong words that what we need in
this world is faith. Faith is our greatest treasure. Faith gives us
eternal life! It helps us to rise up in situations of death, in
poverty, in hatred, in depression, in all situations that are may
occur against our will. When we feel that life has no meaning, then,
we are bleeding, Christ offers a cure. The cure is faith in Christ
Jesus. Never give up hope! Even the daughter in the Gospel who was
dead was raised from life! We too, even in the worst difficulty can be
raised. So, take courage!

We pray …
… for a deep and profound respect for life, especially for the
… for the healing of:

Have a good day!
