Yesterday's Homily

Yesterday was the Sunday of The Paralytic. We listened to the reading of the story, and then Father Stephan spoke about it.

He paraphrased a part of The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis, and focused on the only question Jesus asked the paralytic: "Do you want to be healed?" Sitting and listening, in front of the questioning icons, that was the question I needed to answer. And the answer is yes. The entire day was littered with personal meaning-  one of the readings was the story of Tabitha.

Tabitha was a good person, but she had died like we all do eventually. When she was raised from the dead she went on being a good person, a second chance. I like that.
