Our Lady of Lourdes
Mark 6:53-56

Jesus does not judge the motives of the people in today’s Gospel. Jesus’ response is to heal their suffering and help them on the road to a deeper faith.

They seek nothing but their own physical needs and not a life-changing faith in the Gospel of Jesus. Nevertheless, Jesus addresses their immediate needs and is not concerned about their interior conversion, obviously trusting that His Father will provide the rest.
