Mk 7:31-37

This man must have led such a lonely and perhaps even hopeless existence. He is unable to communicate in a “normal” way and is likely ostracized because of his impediments. Thankfully he has family and/or friends who know about Jesus and bring the man to him for help and healing. Jesus takes him away from the crowd and heals him, body and soul.

You are the Messiah promised by Isaiah in the first reading today. You healed but you also suffered on behalf of your people. Thank you.
