In today’s gospel, we hear about how Jesus healed the ill man at the pool of Bethesda, known for its mysterious legend which includes healing powers and the stirring of its waters.
Signs of Christ abound all around us. However, the gifts of faith and wisdom are required before we can possess eyes with supernatural vision and hearts filled with supernatural love.
When I read the passage above, I’ve never felt more like a Pharisee than today. The people whom Jesus constantly warns us not to be like; I feel it’s as if I’m practicing what they preach.
