Jesus heals a paralytic lowered from the roof

Jesus heals a paralytic lowered from the roof
Pau Morales
Monday of the Second Week of Advent
Gospel text
Lk 5:17-26
Some men brought on a stretcher a man who was paralyzed (...). But not finding a way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on the stretcher through the tiles into the middle in front of Jesus.
Gospel's Commentary
Today we admire these men bringing their paralyzed friend to Jesus. Surrounded by crowds; they cannot get in... But they do not give up: they get him in through the roof! Jesus was impressed and "seeing the faith of them, said: "your sins are forgiven." -Christmas: our salvation comes from above, from Heaven: God-Son reincarnates! First, to forgive us. Then, by fulfilling God’s will, to overcome our many diseases and problems.
