The Gospel for this Sunday tells of Jesus healing a woman who was bent over by illness. (Luke 13:10) Jesus shocks the authorities of his day by freeing her of her burden on the Sabbath, in violation of the tradition of the day, and sets her free from her burden.
Jesus healing tells us much about the Sabbath and also about God’s love for us. God has created the Sabbath as a special day – one we are to keep Holy, that is, for God. But that day is made for us, for our healing. We, who are bent over by the pressures of our lives, are invited to join with God on God’s special day, to receive the healing touch of the Savior and be made free.
We celebrate the healing power of God this Sunday at 10:30 am.
See you in Church!
