“Young man, I say to thee, arise!”
“Thy sins are forgiven thee …
Arise and walk.”
“My grace is sufficient for thee,
for My strength is made perfect in weakness.
Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly
about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:7
“O my brethren, if only we wanted to,
if only we all wanted to perceive
our soul’s paralysis in all its depth!
Then we would see
that it is lying on a stretcher of sins,
deprived of strength.
Christ’s action within us,
would be a source of light
and we would understand
that each day He sees our lack of faith,
harmful as it is, that He draws us
towards healing remedies
and sharply presses our rebellious wills.
“My son” He says, “your sins are forgiven you.”
St Peter Chrysologus (c 400-450)
Father & Doctor of the Church
“If thou art bound down by sickness,
if sorrows weary thee,
if thou art trembling with fear,
invoke the name of Jesus!”
St Lawrence Justinian (1381-1456)
“The medicine of God,
is Jesus Christ,
Crucified and Risen,
the measure of all things.”
