Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time

Word for today
The Gospel of Matthew 9:18-26

Mind and cells

The mind-spirit of one of the leaders of the people acknowledges the Lordship of Jesus and he kneels down and prostrates himself before Jesus. It is neither an act of submission nor of resignation, but of profound and loving faith expressing total obedience to Jesus’ majestic, saving kingship. The father's inner dialogue of total faith and loving obedience allows the billions of cells in his daughter's body to obey Life and come back to life simply at the touch of Jesus' hand.
 The mind-spirit of the sick woman recognizes the Lordship of Jesus; she approaches Him and when she lovingly touches his cloak, she expresses total obedience to his Majestic, saving kingship. It is neither an act of magic nor of superstition, but of profound and loving faith in and obedience to Jesus’ saving kingship. The woman's inner dialogue of total faith and loving obedience allows the billions of cells in her body to obey Life and regain health, harmony and life when she touches the tassel of Jesus's cloak.
The mind-spirit of the persons Jesus meets at the girl's home see only someone to mock and to ridicule. It is an act of complete obedience to their own ignorance, arrogance, and presumption. It is an act of prostration to their inconclusive stupidity produced by an inner dialogue of total submission to their own prejudices and beliefs. Billions of cells obey in any case the energy developed by the misery and presumption of that inner dialogue.
 Every moment of our lives billions and billions of cells in our body are perfectly focused on and ready to obey the nobility or the misery of our inner dialogue.
