Love and Care for Others who are Sick (Mark 1: 29 - 39)

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Indifference and indifference towards others who are sick can be caused by our selfishness, as individual humans. However, when living as a social creature in society, changes in attitudes may occur.

For example, when we ourselves are sick, the attention and concern of others (family, friends, neighbors, etc.) makes us aware and think that a helping hand of love or care and concern for others who are sick is important, especially when we are far from other people. parents or family. At the very least, praying for those who are sick is a form of love and concern for serving others who are sick whenever and wherever they are found.

Saint Arnold Janssen, SVD once emphasized that the sick and the victims they bring in pain and suffering are a blessing for the mission and salvation of many people. That is why we need to change our egoic and indifferent nature and start developing a caring attitude towards those who are sick, even just by praying, so that God will strengthen us and give healing.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. The Gospel reading of Mark 1: 29 -39 which is read today is an illustration for all of us, that Jesus is a healer or doctor who really loves and cares for sick people, both body and soul. Jesus’ real love made Him even more loved and missed by many people.

Jesus healed all the sick and demon-possessed people who were brought to Him. They all experienced joy thanks to the power of God in Jesus. Where Jesus is, there is joy and love.

We are also invited to give love and care to others. This work of Jesus should be kept alive until forever remembering the salvation that Jesus preached and continued by His Church is the integral salvation of soul and body, today and in the future, which must be realized here and now (Hic et nunc).

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. For us Catholics, realizing the news and work of Jesus who loves and cares about serving the sick is very urgent to get attention. Because, the Church’s task should not only be to pay attention to mental or spiritual health, but also physical or physical health, which of course can be achieved if the food is healthy, the place to live is healthy, and the economy is healthy to support oneself and one’s family.

The duty and calling of all of us, especially the Ministry of Religion today, is to provide assistance and help those who care for the sick through fostering family assistance and counseling as a form of caring that is aware that in this work and assistance, we bring to life Jesus’ love and concern for the sick. . By moving to help make Indonesia physically and mentally healthy, in this way Catholics can manifest the message of the love of Jesus Christ to everyone.

May the love of Christ keep us from being selfish and not caring about others, especially the sick.
