The man believed what Jesus said to him and left.

“The royal official said to him, ‘Sir, come down before my child dies.’ Jesus said to him, ‘You may go; your son will live.’ The man believed what Jesus said to him and left.” (JN 4: 49-50)

I admire “the royal official” so much. How difficult it was for him—to leave his dying son, go more than 15 miles to ask for help and believe immediately: “the man believed what Jesus said to him and left.” How happy he was when he met his servants bringing the good news. How many people are asking Our Lord in these days for their relatives to protect them from the coronavirus. God’s word reminds us: “Seek good and not evil so that you may live, and the Lord will be with you.”

“Seek good and not evil so that you may live, and the LORD will be with you.” (Gospel Acclamation)
