Jesus rose and followed him

“While Jesus was speaking, an official came forward, knelt down before him, and said, ‘My daughter has just died. But come, lay your hand on her, and she will live.’ Jesus rose and followed him, and so did his disciples.” (MT 9: 18-19)

This passage says, “Jesus was speaking” when an official came and asked Our Lord. And He “rose and followed him and so did his disciples.” Our Lord answered immediately, not asking: wait please, I need to finish my talk or something like it. We can react the same way when our spouses are asking us for some help.

“Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel.” (Gospel Acclamation)
