Loving Those Who Cannot be Fixed

Speaker: John McLarty

Audio Recording:


It’s great pleasure to fix something for people. To change a tire for someone stranded on the side of a remote highway. To lend money to a friend who left home without a wallet. To perform a surgery that restores function to a joint. To help someone learn an exercise that relieves pain and improves performance. To give someone medicine that cures an illness. In the Gospel all who ask (and some who do not ask) are cured. The lame begin to walk. The blind recover their sight. Even the dead rise to live again. No one copes with incurable pain, irremediable mental illness or disability, or inexorable aging. So, what can we learn from the Gospel stories about a holy response to people in our world with maladies that cannot be fixed? Hint: In the Gospel, the only person whose plea was refused was the Son of God.
