September 2. Prudence shared, “I am always fascinated by the story of Jesus healing Peter’s mother-in-law after which she stood up and served them. In many cases, elderly and poor women even if they are not well still get up and care for their families. One wonders where they get the energy from.” Now Simon’s mother-in-law was ill with a high fever and they asked him about her. He stood over her and rebuked the fever and it left her and immediately she rose and served them. Luke 4:38-44.

Pope Francis: Prayer for the Care of Creation. 2. Son of God, Jesus, through you all things were made.

Praise be to you!
