1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-27, Ps 84, Luke 6:39-42

Christ the physician

Christ is the physician whose love enkindles in the disciple the priestly offering of himself. The disciple freely places on the refiner’s fire the log in his eye. The log’s absence is painful. The soul has become accustomed to a blurred vision. Christ begs the disciple to abide (John 15:4). The disciple blinks, there is a new way of seeing, a compassionate gaze. Now, the brother or sister with the speck in their eye does not run away from the disciple … as before.
