In today's Gospel reading from John 4, after Jesus had arrived in Galilee, a royal official asked him to go to Capernaum to heal his son who was ill and near death. Jesus said to him, "You may go; your son will live." Later the official realized that it was exactly at the time when Jesus said, "Your son will live" that the boy began to recover. You see, the Lord constantly works for our good in the background. He never gets in our way; it is us who block him from helping us. Therefore, trust in him and let him do what he loves to do the most, helping us.
