Synopsis:
During this Lenten season, the “places along the way” to the cross provide an opportunity to reflect upon who and whose we are as we follow Jesus. Today Jesus encounters a parent whose son’s illness caused him terrible suffering. The boy’s father came seeking mercy, and Jesus provided healing. When the disciples wonder why they could not help the boy, Jesus reminds them of the vast resource faith provides. As we journey with Jesus, may we remember what a blessed resource for healing you have.
