Friday of the 1 week in ordinary time ‘c’

It is always interesting that before Jesus healed the physical illness of the paralytic, He first forgave him his sins. Why? I think it is simply because for Jesus our priority always be to remain healthy in spirit and then in the body. We learn today that Jesus has the power to heal your body and your soul, but the soul always come first. How about you? Do you have the same concern about your soul that you have for your body? We all do so much today to protect ourselves form the virus -- covering faces, getting vaccinated, keeping distance, and frequently washing our hands. But again, do you have a similar concern for your soul, namely -- to keep it clean, healthy, and protected from any stain of sin? And even if you should sin, do you seek Jesus’ mercy and forgiveness? The wellbeing of our body is very important, but we can’t forget about our soul. “Child, your sins are forgiven.”
