Lent Reflection: 4th Tuesday of Lent (March 28, 2017) - ‘Immediately the man became well.’(John 5:9)


In today’s Gospel we hear of the cure of the man by the pool at Bethesda. Jesus asks the man, “Do you want to be well?” We all have flaws and areas of our lives that lead us into disunity with God. Imagine that God asks you, “Do you want to be well?” Which aspect of your life needs healing today?


  • I will try to have the humility to name an area of my life that needs healing.
  • I will ask God for the grace to help me change so that I can become more like Jesus in word and deed.
