Matthew 9:1-8

 

The Healing of a Paralytic

 
1[Jesus] entered a boat, made the crossing, and came into his own town. 2And there people brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Courage, child, your sins are forgiven.” 3At that, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming.” 4Jesus knew what they were thinking, and said, “Why do you harbor evil thoughts? 5Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’? 6But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he then said to the paralytic, “Rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home.” 7He rose and went home. 8When the crowds saw this they were struck with awe and glorified God who had given such authority to human beings.

 

Reflection

 
Why do you harbor evil thoughts? Evil thoughts are the real paralysis that needs healing! They paralyze us and keep us from opening to other people and to the Lord’s graces. They enclose us in our own misery, firing up the anger, jealousy, or depression welling in us.

 

I went up to my room after Mass one Sunday, frustrated and mad at a friend who did not even bother to greet or approach me. As soon as I reached my room, I got a text from her telling me that with so many people wanting to speak with me after Mass, she opted not to join the rushing crowd and to call me instead when I would be in my room. Ah, the evil thought almost ruined my day, when it meant nothing after all.

 

Evil thoughts are usually selfish or self-serving, putting our ego before the situation of others. Before you entertain evil thoughts, ask first Jesus’ question, “Why do you harbor evil thoughts?” Often it is easy to do good, a lot tougher to think good!

 

Always give every person you meet
the benefit of the doubt!

Matthew 16:13-19

 

Peter’s Confession about Jesus

 
13When Jesus went into the region of Caesarea Philippi he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14They replied, “Some say John the Baptist, others Elijah, still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16Simon Peter said in reply, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 17Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. 18And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. 19I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

 

Reflection:

 
Who do people say that the Son of Man is? Jesus questions the disciples on three levels. First, who do people say I am? What people tell of us may not be totally true, but their impression of us may have some grain of truth. It may help to consider their reactions to us even if we can take these with a grain of salt.

 

Second, who do you say I am? This is more personal. How we know, understand, and relate with one another is very important.

 

But there is a deeper level of knowing. It is what no mortal has revealed but God himself has made known. This is the third level—how God looks at us. In the end, how God sees and knows us is what matters most. Who we are before him, his love and mercy for us personally, will have more weight than what others say or what we know about ourselves.

 

List five beautiful things you can say about yourself
—talents, strengths, and positive attitudes.
