Homily #140117m ( 11min) Play - Fr. John Joseph talks about today's Gospel passage, and calls each of us to reflect on the different people within this miracle narrative. We must learn humility from the paralytic man himself by accepting in charity the help of others. We must have great faith like the friends of the paralytic, who, by the strength of their faith, brought another to Christ. Looking at these examples, as well as that of St. Anthony of the Desert, let us have great faith and draw others, through the Immaculate, to life in Christ. Ave Maria!
