Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection

     In Mark’s Gospel, faith is a prerequisite for healing. Jesus does not heal to make people believe; he heals those whose faith is strong. Last week Jesus healed two people whose faith was strong. “Your faith has saved you,” Jesus tells the woman who had been ill for twelve years (Mark 5:34). But in today’s Gospel, “he was not able to perform any mighty deed” among his own kin because of “their lack of faith” (Mark 6:5-6). Our faith aids our receptivity to God’s grace.

 

     Jesús Se Admiraba de Como se Negaban a Creer En el Evangelio de Marcos la fe es un prerrequisito para una curación. Jesús no cura para hacer que la gente crea; él cura a aquellos cuya fe es fuerte. La semana pasada Jesús curó a dos personas que tenían una fe fuerte. “Tu fe te ha curado”, le dice Jesús a la mujer que había estado enferma por doce años (Marcos 5:34). Pero en el Evangelio de hoy “no pudo hacer allí ningún milagro” entre sus propios parientes, por “la incredulidad de aquella gente” (Marcos 6:5-6). Nuestra fe nos ayuda a recibir la gracia de Dios.
