This week in his homily, Fr. Steve continues the healing series, based on the past three weeks Gospel readings, beginning with the woman at the well, the man born blind, and the raising of Lazarus from the dead. Always loving us, God is at work in our lives, even when He waits to respond to our prayer. Most of all, God wants us to know His healing power, and to know His presence in our lives. He loves us and longs for us to hear Him speaking in our hearts. As baptized believers, we have the Spirit, and God longs for us to respond to the spiritual gifts He gives each of us. He wants us to employ those gifts for the building up of the Kingdom of God and the salvation of souls. When we do, our faith grows, as does the faith of those who see and hear us testify to God's goodness to us.
