PRAYER TO PADRE PIO FOR HEALING

PRAYER TO PADRE PIO FOR HEALING

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, obedient father, you loved the sick and infirm more than yourself because in them you saw Jesus. In the name of God you performed miracles of healing in body, soul and mind.

Your intercession with God healed the ills of past and present and strengthened people to respond with confidence to future challenges. Those who came to you regained a sense of spiritual integrity as you rekindled hope in their lives, and encouraged them to renew the spirit in their hearts.

Through the intercession of Our Heavenly Mother, may we experience your powerful assistance and be healed in our bodily and spiritual needs, particularly (name it) and gratefully give praise and thanks to God for all His blessings. Amen.

CAN A PERSON BE CURED AT LOURDES IF SHE HAS NO FAITH?

Question: Can a person be cured at Lourdes if she has no faith?

Answer: We cannot place bounds or limits on what Our Lady will or will not do. It is her privilege to intercede for and cure a person who has no faith, just as she intercedes for all those who believe in her son Jesus Christ and who, though weak and sinful, persevere in trying to live according to the teaching of Christ and his Church.”

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 9:1-6)

(Week 25 of the year: Wednesday)

JESUS SENT THEM OUT TO PROCLAIM THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND TO HEAL.

Jesus called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey: neither staff, nor haversack, nor bread, nor money; and let none of you take a spare tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there; and when you leave, let it be from there. As for those who do not welcome you, when you leave their town shake the dust from your feet as a sign to them.” So they set out and went from village to village proclaimed the Good News and healing everywhere.

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 6:6-11)

(Week 23 of the year: Monday)

THEY WERE WATCHING JESUS TO SEE IF HE WOULD CURE A MAN ON THE SABBATH.

On the sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach, and a man was there whose right hand was withered. The scribes and the Pharisees were watching him to see if he would cure a man on the sabbath, hoping to find something to use against him.

But he knew their thoughts; and he said to the man with the withered hand, “Stand up! Come out into the middle.” And he came out and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, “I put it to you: is it against the law on the sabbath to do good, or to do evil; to save life, or to destroy it?” Then he looked round at them all and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so, and his hand was better. But they were furious, and began to discuss the best way of dealing with Jesus.

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 4:38-44)

(Week 22 of the year: Wednesday)

I MUST PROCLAIM THE GOOD NEWS TO THE OTHER TOWNS, TOO, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT I WAS SENT TO DO.

Leaving the synagogue Jesus went to Simon’s house. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever and they asked him to do something for her. Leaning over her he rebuked the fever and it left her. And she immediately got up and began to wait on them.

At sunset all those who had friends suffering from diseases of one kind or another brought them to him, and laying his hands on each he cured them. Devils too came out of many people, howling, “You are the Son of God.” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak because they knew that he was the Christ.

When daylight came he left the house and made his way to a lonely place. The crowds went to look for him, and when they had caught up with him they wanted to prevent him leaving them, but he answered, “I must proclaim the Good News of the kingdom of God to the other towns too, because that is what I was sent to do.” And he continued his preaching in the synagogues of Judaea.

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (MATTHEW 15:21-28)

(20. Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A)

WOMAN, YOU HAVE GREAT FAITH.

Jesus left Gennesaret and withdrew to the region of Tyre and Sidon. Then out came a Canaanite woman from that district and started shouting, “Sir, Son of David, take pity on me. My daughter is tormented by a devil.” But he answered her not a word. And his disciples went and pleaded with him. “Give her what she wants,” they said, “because she is shouting after us.”

He said in reply, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” But the woman had come up and was kneeling at his feet. “Lord,” she said, “help me.” He replied, “It is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the house-dogs.” She retorted, “Ah yes, sir; but even house-dogs can eat the scraps that fall from their master’s table.” Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, you have great faith. Let your wish be granted.” And from that moment her daughter was well again.

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (MATTHEW 17:14-20)

IF YOU HAD FAITH, NOTHING WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU.

A man came up to Jesus and went down on his knees before him. “Lord,” he said “take pity on my son: he is a lunatic and in a wretched state; he is always falling into the fire or into the water. I took him to your disciples and they were unable to cure him.” “Faithless and perverse generation!” Jesus said in reply “How much longer must I be with you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him here to me.” And when Jesus rebuked it the devil came out of the boy who was cured from that moment.

Then the disciples came privately to Jesus. “Why were we unable to cast it out?” they asked. He answered, “Because you have little faith. I tell you solemnly, if your faith were the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’, and it would move; nothing would be impossible for you.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
