Unable to get near Jesus

“Unable to get near Jesus because of the crowd, they opened up the roof above him.” (MK 2: 4)

Sometimes it also happens with our spouses and us. We are “unable to get near”; maybe stress at work, maybe our last “conversation” or his night rituals (not with me, but with a bottle of wine and TV) or … many other things. But “unable” doesn’t mean impossible; it just means—be more creative. There is always something not conventional (like coming by a roof, not by doors); it is only a matter of our creativity and determination. When we really want to “get near,” our hearts will lead us to how to do it.   

“A great prophet has arisen in our midst, and God has visited his people.” (Gospel Acclamation)
