Something radical…

Deacon Mike Dalessandro

“Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd, they opened up the roof above him.”

Words from our gospel today, the gospel of Mark.

Sometimes we have to tear the roof off the building to bring someone to God.

We all have that someone in our lives.

Let the fire of your faith warm the hardness of another.

That person who won’t budge.
The person paralyzed.
The person in sin.

Jesus responds to the faith of four men who went to extremes to bring someone to him.

In Mark’s gospel, faith always is a precursor to healing.

It wasn’t the faith of the paralyzed man that brought about his healing.

Sometimes praying for someone is just enough.
But sometimes it requires much more.

Tactful and prudent, but radical.

  1. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog
    blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for novice blog writers? I’d really appreciate
