We don't travel alone

Also from today's Mass, a reading from the gospel of Luke where some men bring a paralytic on a stretcher to Jesus and are forced by the crowds to lower him into the house where Jesus is preaching from the roof (Luke 5:17-26).

One phrase struck me, "When Jesus saw THEIR faith, he said, 'As for you, (the paralytic) your sins are forgiven'." None of us travels this Advent roadway alone, and many times it is others who have faith on our behalf, even when we have no ability or insight to seek God's healing for ourselves.

Who is helping you to be healed right now on your Advent journey? Perhaps someone of whom you are not even aware.
