There's More in the Sunday Gospel than Meets the Eye for 4 February 2018

Listen to this week's edition of our reflection on the Gospel readings which tell us that Church believes that Christ who is our peace has through His Cross reconciled Jews and Gentiles and made them one in Himself, prepared by Jill Bevilacqua.

In this week's edition of "There's More in the Sunday Gospel than Meets the Eye, Jill Bevilacqua and Sean Patrick Lovett bring us readings and reflections from the Gospel of St. Mark 1:29-39.

Listen to our Sunday Gospel Commentary

On leaving the synagogue
Jesus entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John.
Simon's mother-in-law lay sick with a fever.
They immediately told him about her.
He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up.
Then the fever left her and she waited on them.

When it was evening, after sunset,
they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons.
The whole town was gathered at the door.
He cured many who were sick with various diseases,
and he drove out many demons,
not permitting them to speak because they knew him.

Rising very early before dawn, he left
and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed.
Simon and those who were with him pursued him
and on finding him said, "Everyone is looking for you."
He told them, "Let us go on to the nearby villages
that I may preach there also.

For this purpose have I come."
So he went into their synagogues,
preaching and driving out demons throughout the whole of Galilee.
