The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

Jesus in Simon Peter’s Village

Reflection on the Gospel of the Wednesday In The Twenty-Second Week In Ordinary Time

Luke 4:38-44

In the Gospel of John there is the remarkable transformation of heart of the Samaritan Woman at the well, from being a neglected person to one who is a guiding light to the Light and Life that is Jesus.

All the Synoptic Gospel (i.e Matthew, Mark and Luke) mention this healing of Peter’s Mother-in-Law. She is not a person to stand out in the crowd, of her time. She is simple and was suffering from high fever. But what is remarkable is her response to Jesus’ kindness of going to her, and driving away the fever she had. She recognised in that instance the deity of Jesus – who he was. Her response reminds me of Mary Magdalene’s recognition of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane on Resurrection Morning – “Rabboni“.

For me the sign to recognise growth and discipleship has always been how a person reacts to opportunities of service around him/her self. And that is what we see her doing… waiting on Jesus and his companions… and probably also the catalyst in inviting those of her village to receive miracles, healing and wisdom at the hands of the Christ.

Pray earnestly to be able to recognise Jesus working in and around you, and in you recognising him, receive conviction and wisdom, like her says, my Rabboni, my Lord and God.
