Readings for today’s Mass
I've been living with cancer for about ten years. I have asked God for healing -- much like the fellow in the Gospel. As my oncologist has reminded me, "Your cancer is treatable, but not curable." So what can I expect of God when I pray for healing? I've come to the conclusion that I can expect "strength" to deal with whatever comes. If I enjoy the present moment and pay attention to all the gifts God gives me constantly--good medical care, the sun in the morning, funny wee dogs, the love of my wife--I can stay whole. After all, healing comes from an old Saxon word meaning "whole." Suffering comes when I feel pulled apart, torn asunder by fear and doubt. God "heals" me through all the small and large signs of divine care that keep telling me, "You are loved and cared for." So I pray, "God, be my refuge, my strength, and my help."
