About Today Readings

Hebrews 2:5-12. Psalm 8:2-5, 9. Mark 1:21-28.

You gave your Son authority over all your creation – Psalm 8:2-5, 9.

‘I know who you are, the Holy One of God!’

A healer by word and deed, Jesus’ command to ‘be silent’ is one which invites us to encounter our deepest self. This is the place of those primal wounds which Jesus comes to heal. It is where we are made whole, for it is the home of the Holy Spirit.

Transformed by the blessing of Jesus, the man was made new and the crowd were amazed. How different was the authority of Jesus. It seemed to come from a deep inner strength.

Jesus’ decisions to heal and to bless reveal the true nature of his mission. He seeks to bring about a restoration such that people might live in full stature the hope to which they are called.
