Lectio: Wednesday, Twenty-Second Week in Ordinary Time
Readings of the day: RB Prol. 39-44; Col. 1:1-8; Luke 4: 38-44
Today we hear of Simon’s mother-in-law and her response to Jesus’ healing presence: She got up immediately and acted, serving Jesus and others. In today’s passage from the Holy Rule, Saint Benedict calls us to make haste—to run and act in a way that will profit us forever. Now is the time to be more aware of God’s presence in our lives, to be alert and prepare our hearts and minds to do His will, namely, to love and serve God and our neighbor. Simon’s mother-in-law gave us the example. 
Dear Jesus, please give us the graces we need this day to be open to your healing presence and touch as we sing with the psalmist: “I will thank you always for what you have done, and proclaim the goodness of your name before your faithful ones.”
