Daily homily thoughts, 7/5

In our Gospel today we read about a group of people who brought Jesus a paralytic on a stretcher.  Our Gospel tells us that when Jesus saw their faith, he cured the paralytic.  Faith will not make life easy, but it will make life easier.  Just because we have faith doesn’t mean that there won’t be any trials or tribulations.  But, faith will help us get through them.  We must try to live our life according to these words,“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
