Liturgical Year: 5th Sunday of Ordinary Time Cycle: B
Gospel: Mark 1: 29 – 39
In this week’s Gospel, Mark tells the story of Jesus curing Simon’s mother-in-law, and how quickly news spread about Jesus the healer – He had the whole town knocking on His door! Mark also tells of Jesus’ commitment to praying at all times. We learn that prayer was important to Jesus, and so it should be important to us too!
