When we reflect on Scripture, we consider not only physical healing but spiritual transformations. The first thing you might notice in the Gospel is that the official’s son is healed, but that is not the end of the story. When the son is healed, the man “came to believe.” The Psalm provides a prayer of thanksgiving for the times we have been rescued/healed by God. Make a list of those times God has been with you and healed you. Today’s Readings: Isaiah 65:17– 21; Psalm 30:2 and 4, 5 – 6, 11–12a and 13b; John 4:43 – 54.
