This week’s RC Statement to Live by is

I know when to ask for help and who to ask for help from.

Luke 5 v 5 – 17

One day Jesus was teaching the people. The Pharisees and teachers of the law were there too. They had come from every town in Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem. The Lord was giving Jesus the power to heal people. There was a man who was paralysed. Some men were carrying him on a mat. They tried to bring him in and put him before Jesus. But because there were so many people there they could not find a way to Jesus. So the men went up on the roof and made a hole in the ceiling. They lowered the mat so that the paralysed man was lying right in front of Jesus. Jesus saw these men believed and. So he said to the sick man, “Friend your sins are forgiven.” …………….

Jesus said to the paralysed man, “I tell you, stand up! Take your mat and go home.”

Then the man stood up before the people there. He picked up his mat and went home, praising God. They were filled with much respect and said, “Today we have seen amazing things!”
