Fr. Mark Bozada – Do You Want To Be Healed?

My Dear People,

How Does The Healing Process Work?

The Thankful Leper

All healing comes from Our Lord. We know that when our bodies, minds, souls and spirits get healed, Jesus is the source of all of this. When Christ encounters the ten lepers on the road, His heart is moved with pity. Everywhere Jesus comes across those who are ill, He reaches out to touch and heal them. And so it is with the lepers. From a distance the men call out to the Lord, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us”. Telling them to show themselves to the priests, was in keeping with Mosaic Law. In obedience the lepers comply. While on the way they were made whole. Only one of them, a non-Jew, a Samaritan, returns to give thanks. Jesus points outs to this leper that it was his “faith” that healed him. Why would Jesus say this? Had not His healing power healed the lepers? Of course the answer is yes.

But we need to work with Our Lord in the healing process. This is where our faith enters the picture. Without our complete trust and confidence in the Lord, no real healing can take place because Jesus heals from the inside out. First He forgives sin and heals the heart, and then the body follows. So “unforgiveness” is a major blockage to our healing. Frequent confession not only heals the soul, but the body as well. God puts the whoe package together. Consider this, if you have not been in the confessional for a long, long time, consider going to confession. This will not only heal the hear and soul, but he body as well.

Entrusting you to the care of Our Lady,

Fr. Mark Bozada

Like the one leper who returned, may we regularly take time to thank God for all the blessings He bestows on us.

    Dear Father

    Again Father, I deeply appreciate your thoughts on the subject of healing. I am most impressed by your spiritual insight into the nature of healing ‘from the inside out’ so to speak. Also I would like to mention those persons who are not physically healed (as in my case). As many of us know, God heals in different ways. I believe that sometimes Our Beloved Master chooses souls to share His Cross. Why He does this I can not say…He often works in mysterious ways. Because of a number of spinal surgeries and other physical problems I was not only in pain but became very depressed. Throughout this time I initially thought that God had abandoned my soul. Certainly I deserve His Wrath for the many sins I have committed in my life. However, God forgives and heals the soul first. in 2006 by His Mercy alone I saw that there is a purpose in suffering. We, my brothers and sisters, who are confined and homebound. can offer ourselves as a living prayer before Our Savior. This honor is not bestowed on every soul. In this way we (the suffering Church) are called to live as if everyday we can contribute to the Faith and support in prayer the many needs and problems of our Church. Please I beg you, the suffering, do not turn away from Our King because of your plight. He will use for His Glory if you allow Him
