FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME-FEBRUARY 4TH, 2018

Sing praises to the Lord who heals the broken-hearted.

In the gospel passage Jesus comes to Simon’s mother-in-law, stretches out his hand and cures her.Christ gives us no answer about suffering nor does he try to explain why people have to suffer but showed us the importance of turning suffering into joy.By identifying himself with the sick and the dying even to dying himself on the Cross, Jesus clearly revealed that suffering is part of God’s mysterious plan.It all depends on how we shoulder our cross, for, by uniting our trials with Christ’s we can enjoy his victory.Whatever happens to us, all things will work together for those who love God and share in the passion of Christ. The gospel does not guarantee our freedom from suffering but gives us the assurance that God is with us however great our suffering may be.
