Pull us out of the cistern

Today’s gospel makes me want to pray – pull us out of the cistern, Lord, please, pull us out.  I still find my heart heavy and look around for signs of healing.  I don’t see much, just fumes of smoke.  The anger of the righteous condemning others.  The anger of hurt of the victims. Then there is the silent suffering of many.  I’m afraid I am moving beyond the Church in my thoughts – so many more are abused outside the Church – when will we give voice to that suffering.  That said, this blog is committed to the spiritual reparation of the sexual abuse of innocent at the hands of priests and nuns, especially in Ireland.  Let us all continue to pray for this.

On a sabbath Jesus went to dine
at the home of one of the leading Pharisees,
and the people there were observing him carefully.
In front of him there was a man suffering from dropsy.
Jesus spoke to the scholars of the law and Pharisees in reply, asking,
“Is it lawful to cure on the sabbath or not?”
But they kept silent; so he took the man and,
after he had healed him, dismissed him.
Then he said to them
“Who among you, if your son or ox falls into a cistern,
would not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?”
But they were unable to answer his question

Prayers and the rosary next – please pray, say the rosary, go to Eucharistic Adoration, do Friday penance, go to confession.  And, in you charity pray for me as well.  Thank you.
