The history of Saint John the Baptist



GOSPEL GLIMPSES
September 5, 2021
Mk 7:31-37

Gotta’ tell somebody

     There is nothing more delightful or amusing than a child with a secret. Their eyes and feet dance with excitement, small lips tremble with barely contained words. It’s almost impossible not to feel giddy with them. Looking into a face bursting with pent-up joy, we long to hear the news but then we can’t help regretting the loss of their enchanting anticipation.

     What an extraordinary thing to know God has felt the same! When Jesus began to cure the lame, deaf and blind, He asked those healed to tell no one. And for a few delicious minutes, maybe even hours, the Messiah and His children shared a precious secret – the healing power of God’s love. They felt the same bubbling joy of a miraculous story not yet told. But, alas, the story, the secret, was too good not to tell and the healed spilled their good news, proclaiming Jesus far and wide. What about you? Have you shared a secret with the Savior?  Has God worked miracles, small or large, in your life? Go ahead, let it bubble over. Tell somebody what God has done for you – He’ll be glad you shared the secret.
