In the Gospel this week we see an incredible demonstration of faithfulness.
Some followers brought a deaf man with a speech impediment to Jesus and begged Him to heal the man. Their faith in Jesus and their faithfulness in caring for someone in need resulted in the man being able to hear and speak as Jesus laid His hands on him.
Our faith in God and our faith tradition calls us to make the effort and plead the case of those in need – the poor, the sick, the lonely.
Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta was once asked how she kept on caring for so many poor people without getting discouraged. She replied, "I do not pray for success. I ask for faithfulness."
In your prayers this week, ask God for faithfulness. The result just might be miraculous.
